It wouldn’t be Vivienne Westwood if there wasn’t a bold political statement – and this time it was anti-austerity at her London Fashion Week Show.
Placards with things like “Austerity is a crime” and “climate revolution” where held up as she showcased her SS16 collection in central London. It’s part of a campaign called Politicians Or Criminals.
The 74-year-old’s collection was a stunning mix of florals, lilac and pretty print clashing. While models had (intentionally) matted hair and shiny make up.
Vivienne Westwood (centre) made her entrance before the show even started, leading a chic fracking protest outside the University of Westminster.
And she took it all the way to the catwalk.
At audience level, we saw Lily Allen looking lovely with her shocking pink hair brightening up a smart suit.
Singer Louisa Rose Allen – aka Foxes – also looked very pretty in pink(ish).
And we loved actress and designer Sadie Frost’s slightly 60s, slightly air hostess neckerchief touch.
But the stars weren’t just in the audience – Elizabeth Jagger effortlessly owned the catwalk, book in hand.
But a Vivienne Westwood catwalk wouldn’t be complete without a fresh take on her signature tartan.
As well as this vibrant piece, showing us what the Red Label headline is all about.
Finally, who doesn’t love a cheeky peek backstage? Before the show began, the boss herself was there to make sure that those hair and shiny make-up designs we loved so much were just right.
