Vivienne Westwood calls for a “Climate Revolution”

By RTCC Staff

British fashion designer Vivienne Westwood has called for a “Climate Revolution” and advised people not to buy her clothes in support.

Speaking at London Fashion Week, the 71-year-old told the Wall Street Journal her latest collection should be seen as a message about the dangers of climate change.

“Before we have had class war, rich against poor. You know what the division is now? It’s idiots against eco-warriors. That’s it,” she said.

“My message is buy less, choose well, make it last. Even better, don’t buy anything.”

When questioned on whether she would want people to buy her latest collection she added: “No, I wish they wouldn’t.”

Walking down the catwalk on Sunday, Westwood sported a moustache and black circle painted around one eye, while wrapped in a banner announcing a “climate revolution” and a t-shirt bearing the same message.
