First ever plus-size collection show at London Fashion Week

Westwood votes for Scottish independence

She’s a Dame but that hasn’t stopped Vivienne Westwood proudly pinning a “Yes” badge to her chest and that of her models at her spring-summer 2015 runway show this week.

The British designer, who is known for using the catwalk as a platform for making political statements, is urging Scotland to vote for independence ahead of the historic referendum this week.

It’s no secret that Westwood is a fan of tartan, which she uses in most of her collections.

Westwood believes ending the 307-year-old union could be “the turning point towards a better world”.
