This was the most dramatic backdrop for the latest collection turn manifesto in which Westwood channelled her political views to the audience. From Brexit, taxation, democracy and consumption, the topics were very relevant to customers worldwide now.

Both walking and talking the show, models strutted down the catwalk in a political protest to raise awareness and stop climate change. Westwood is renowned for using the catwalk and her clothes to convey political ideas. The runway has become the stage for her to voice her political views and the Autumn Winter show did exactly that!

Designs sprawled with slogans and blurring the lines between the menā€™s and womenā€™s designs. The show was eye-catching, bold and truly made you think. Signature styles of check and tartan revived for the modern day, along with protest t-shirts and knitwear flooded the catwalk for the grand finale. As the models, intellectuals and activists alike aligned together to provoke the point of buy less, choose well and make it last.
