Fashion and `a great cause` were brought together on Sunday 20th September at Vivienne Westwood`s Red Label Spring/Summer Collection at London Fashion Week. The show was dedicated to raising awareness of climate change as part of The Prince`s Rainforests Project.
The frog was the theme of the show which is the symbol of rainforests and ambassador for the rainforests project. The models showcased quirky frog accessories alongside Westwood`s gorgeous clothes, which I think had a great impact! She also designed a fibreglass 70cm tall frog that had been created and decorated by her studio team. The design, which appeared in her Red Label Catwalk Show, featured hand-prints to demonstrate that we all have a role to play to help tackle climate change. This was definitely one show I would have loved to have attended as I absolutely adore Vivienne Westwood`s clothes. More designers should get involved with worldwide issues, or at least make their followers more aware, as it is a great way to make people take action.
Thousands of people have already added their name to the Prince`s Rainforests Project call for action on climate change at www.rainforestSOS.org. We think Vivienne Westwood is an out-spoken advocate of The Prince`s Rainforests Project and at Sunday`s show she even asked everyone who attended to give their name to show the world`s leaders gathering in Copenhagen for crucial climate change talks this December that they must take action and that there is a public will for them to do so.
