On our minds: Vivienne Westwood wants to save Venice
The Vivienne Westwood Gold Label collection for SS16 worked to mirror the designer’s political activism – this time the climate change was in focus.
On our minds is one of our recurring favourites at Paris Fashion Week – the Vivienne Westwood Gold Label show. For SS16, the collection once again reflected the designer’s political activism – this time, the climate change cause. This season took a slightly new perspective however, with carnival-inspired garments in tribute of the sinking city of Venice. The show, named “Mirror the World”, began with a video clip of Westwood reflecting on the historical and cultural impact of the place, and the collection was all about saving it – an issue of renovation, but also one of climate change.
