London Fashion Week Festival is delighted to announce that British fashion designer and activist Dame Vivienne Westwood has designed this season’s limited edition tote bag.
Vivienne Westwood has designed the tote bag for this season’s London Fashion Week Festival. The Festival will be coming to The Store Studios at 180 Strand – the official home of London Fashion Week – from 23rd-26th February. Throughout the event, there will be talks organised with industry experts, catwalk shows from London Fashion Week designers, and a shopping experience offering top brands at discounted prices.
Made from 100% organic cotton, the bag was inspired by this season’s Vivienne Westwood Autumn-Winter 2017/18 show entitled ‘Ecotricity’. The map graphic is Vivienne Westwood’s representation of NASA’s projection of the effect of climate change on the world, should the earth’s temperature rise by four degrees or more. Westwood’s solution is simple: SWITCH to Green Energy ‘Ecotricity’ and STOP Climate Change.
The limited edition totes are included with silver, gold and LUXE tickets, and a limited amount will be available for purchase by bronze ticket holders at London Fashion Week Festival for £20 each. 50% of the profit will be donated to Westwood’s choice of charity, Fuel Poverty Action, which works with pensioners’ groups, tenants’ associations and others who provide practical aid in the form of blankets and draft-proofing, as well as helping people to get their debts written off.
