This season Dame Vivienne took her Red Label back time to an era of tailoring, clean lines, capes, prints, jacards, her iconic tartan and lot’s and lot’s of wool.
Staying true to her belief in supporting amazing causes, this show supported the Environmental Justice Foundation’s (EJF) ‘No Place Like Home’ campaign for climate refugees. “The t-shirts I designed, seen in the show, support the campaign to raise awareness of the plight of people who have been forced from their homes and land due to the increasing and intensifying impact of climate change. This can happen through violent calamity, but also and often people are forced into a decision to move because their land is no longer habitable. EJF believes that climate change is one of the most profound threats to people’s rights to life, food, health, water and shelter. Unlike the 10 million refugees recognized by the UN Refugee Agency, these people currently have no legal status or protection. EJF is calling for urgent international action to provide them with legal recognition, assistance and protection” quotes Vivienne.
The bespoke t-shirts are made using an exemplary low carbon supply chain and are manufactured using renewable green energy. Priced at £20, the exclusive t-shirts will go on sale from 4th May at Selfridges and online at www.viviennewestwood.co.uk and www.ejfoundation.org/shop. Log on and take a look!
