Dame Vivienne Westwood supports the PRP at London Fashion Week
21st September: Fashion industry icon and enthusiastic environmentalist Dame Vivienne Westwood launched her 2010 Red Label Spring/Summer collection at London Fashion Week on Sunday, September 20th with a special kind of green show…
In support of The Prince’s Rainforests Project (PRP), Vivienne dedicated her show and models to the humble frog, the symbol of rainforests and ambassador for the PRP. Vivienne has also designed a frog that has been created and decorated by her studio. The fibreglass frog model features a design of hand prints to demonstrate that we all have a role to play to helping tackle climate change so we all need to roll our sleeves up and get our hands dirty! This frog model, which is 70cm tall, appeared in her Red Label catwalk show on Sunday, with her models, including Pixie Geldof and Lisa from Big Brother, also wearing frog accessories incorporated in her designs.
Vivienne is supporting the PRP by asking everyone to give their name, to show the world 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.
