London Fashion Week is fast approaching, and for this season’s Festival (LFWF), British fashion designer and activist Dame Vivienne Westwood (our hero) has designed the uber-coveted tote bag. Made from 100% organic cotton, the bag is inspired by the Vivienne Westwood AW17 show called “Ecotricity”. Starring the map graphic that Westwood designed as a representation of NASA’s projection of what climate change will do to the world (should the temperature rise by four degrees or more), her message is clear: SWITCH to Green Energy ‘Ecotricity’ and STOP Climate Change. If you want to know more about Westwood’s message (which you absolutely should), pick up a copy of “Get A Life: The Diaries of Vivienne Westwood.”
Vivienne Westwood said ‘Global warming is at the tipping point. If we go past it, we can’t stop it. All the methane kicks in. We’re there right now. Stop Climate Change. All our friends are going to SWITCH to Green Energy – Ecotricity – and I am happy to design a tote that communicates this important message’
The limited edition totes will be available to buy at LFWF for £20 each, with 50% of the profit being donated to Westwood’s charity of choice, Fuel Poverty Action,which works with pensioners’ groups, tenants’ associations and others who provide practical aid in the form of blankets, draft-proofing, as well as helping people to get their debts written off.
