Vivienne Westwood On Her New Campaign: 'We Want a Responsible Government'

Ethan James Green for Alexander McQueen

The designer has long been an outspoken advocate for action about climate change.

Vivienne Westwood has long been a major voice of political resistance, particularly when it comes to climate change policy. Her show at London Fashion Week: Men's this past January saw models, male and female, dressed in clothing with pieces of litter adorned upon them, and with the word, "Motherfucker," scrawled across many pieces.

"The show we presented at London Fashion Week: Mens in January this year is for man and woman," she said in a press release. "She and he are having fun with Unisex and swapping clothes. 'Buy less, choose well, make it last' limits the exploitation of the planet's natural resources. He and she have joined Intellectuals Unite (IOU) and are becoming ever more scared of Climate Change."

Her new fall '17 campaign continues to push that message of alarm about the state of our planet's health.

"Our hair stands on end," she continues. "We wear a paper crown. Who are our rulers? We don't accept the rule of the million, we want people power /democratic rule. We want a responsible government, responsible to people, not only responsible to banks and conglomerate monopolies. Stop Climate Change. SWITCH to green energy."
