Vivienne Westwood has created her latest 'Chari-tees' for Comic relief's Red nose day - 18 March 2011.
After working closely with Comic Relief and designing a range of t-shirts, Westwood says: “I once did a collection called ‘I am Expensiv’, meaning that we are supported by the suffering of the whole world in our privilege bubbles and we must try and help people a bit. Comic Relief does a lot and I try to help where I can. My main problem at the minute is climate change. I do believe we are an endangered species and I think it is great to try and do anything you possibly can even if to help just one person. But Comic Relief does more than that.”
Vivenne Westwood is known for making political statements through her work in fashion. Her chari-tees' take inspiration from history. Featuring striking black and white prints of historical figures and icons, prints include Shakespeare, Hogarth imagery, the famous Vivienne Westwood punk girl and skull and cross-bones.
