Vivienne Westwood Supports Big Issue

Legendary fashion designer Dame Vivienne Westwood has created a limited edition t-shirt to support the work of The Big Issue.

Westwood, well known for bringing modern punk and new wave fashions into the mainstream, has also been politically outspoken on many issues including nuclear disarmament, climate change and civil rights.

In collaboration with The Big Issue, Vivienne Westwood has created a special limited-edition Tao T – Vivienne For Big Issue. Printed locally in the UK, the T-shirt features the ‘Tao’ artwork, encouraging us to ‘Get A Life’, follow our deep interests and self-educate ourselves for the better. Made from organic, unbleached, Peruvian cotton that is sustainable, all the profits from the sales will be donated to The Big Issue.

Recently Westwood sat down for an exclusive interview with the Big Issue. In it, she explains the fashion statement that the t-shirt makes.

“It’s simple, use your potential, become who you are,” said Westwood. “It’s a hopeful and empowering message that can help spread the word, start conversations and explode the narrative.”

That empowering message is centred on the environment with Westwood focusing on the perils of our wear-it-once culture.
