International fashion designer Vivienne Westwood has shown her support for the Repeal the eighth project.
The group's Facebook page posted a photo this afternoon of Vivienne holding one of their signature 'Repeal' sweatshirts.
The post reads "Thank you Vivienne Westwood for repping #repealthe8th and Roisin Agnew, Irish journalist for supporting us since we started and making this happen."
The post has already been like over 200 times, in just 40 minutes.
This is a major step for the repeal project, with Vivienne being one of the first international players to show support.
The Repeal Project is an outerwear project that seeks to vindicate the rights of Irish women with regards to abortion.
British clothing store, Topshop has released a series of short films based on Kate Moss’ latest collection for the fashion retailer.
The latest promotional film stars model Cara Delevigne, where the 21-year-old speaks of her admiration for the British star.
Cara spoke of how she hated fashion as a child, but loved Kate Moss.
“I just knew exactly who she was of course, she was the face, she was the icon. Everyone just wanted to dress like Kate, and she kind of brought that to the (Topshop) collection, made everyone be able to have that style that she has, which is just incredible.”
Other short films have featured Net-a-Porter founder, Natalie Massenet and designer, Vivienne Westwood who also talk about Kate’s influence on the fashion world.
Dame Vivienne Westwood is known for her proud stance as a vegetarian and campaigning for PETA.
But in this new video, released by PETA, the fashion designer tells us the ways in which being a vegetarian can actually impact your water consumption also.
Vivienne tell us that the meat industry is not only the “worst polluter of the planet but also squanders most of our water”.
In an interview following the video Vivienne goes on to divulge her unusual bathing rituals, including reusing her husband’s bath water, saying: “I’m not used to the habit of showering. I just wash my bits and rush out in the morning. I more often than not get in the bath after Andreas.”
Dame Vivienne Westwood has done the unthinkable – cut off all of her trademark red hair.
The designer reportedly wanted to draw attention to climate change, a spokesperson said: “Vivienne cut her hair as we must all wake up to climate change … and secondly she wanted to cut the red out for a while and have it white – to show she’s proud of her age.”
The 72 year-old British designer hasn’t changed her hair colour for decades so there is no doubt this cause is close to her heart.
It has also been reported that Westwood will be pausing her business for a time in order to help promote the protection of the Arctic with Greenpeace.
Remember that Vivienne Westwood hat Pharrell Williams wore to the Grammys? Well, the Happy singer is auctioning it off and so far bidding has reached an incredible $10,500.
The eye-catching park ranger style headwear is being sold to raise money for the recording artist’s charity, From One Hand to AnOTHER, an organisation that helps deprived children with additional education resources.
The 40-year-old took to Twitter to let his fans know that it was up for grabs. He tweeted: “I’m auctioning off my hat from the Grammys to benefit From One Hand to AnOTHER #PharrellsHat @eBay”
The huge fedora, which was popular with the likes of Beyonce, Jay-Z and Ariana Grande at the awards ceremony, appeared at the recent BRIT awards and the National Basketball Association All-Star game. Williams will even issue a letter of authenticity to the lucky owner so that you know it’s the real deal.
With only nine days left to bid, you might want to get your thinking caps on as to where you can raise that much cash.
