Vivienne Westwood Red Label

Shown recently at London Fashion Week, Vivienne Westwood often uses her Red Label line as a platform to discuss climate change. The strong styling of the models through the white makeup was a look described by Westwood as like an animal trapped in the headlights, and as a metaphor for the plight of the worlds refugees.

The Red Label collections are timeless, practical Westwood pieces rather than items of disposable fashion.

A quote from Westwood 
"Buy less, choose well, make it last. Quality rather than quantity: That is true sustainability. If people only bought beautiful things rather than rubbish, we wouldn't have climate change!" 
a reference to the consumerism of fast fashion and its impact on the world.
