Westwood offers Kate fashion advice
Fashion icon Dame Vivienne Westwood has called on the Duchess of Cambridge to stop buying so many different outfits and instead make more of an effort to be environmentally friendly.
Before her London Fashion Week showcase at the Saatchi Gallery on Sunday, Dame Vivienne said that when Kate goes to so much effort to get an outfit that looks good, she should wear it more often.
The designer, who believes in quality over quantity, disapproves of Kate's expansive wardrobe.
She said: "I don't have any advice to her, except I think it would be great if she wore the same clothes over and again, because that's very good for the environment and it would send out a very nice message.
"If you're going to all that trouble to get an outfit that suits you, then you should keep on wearing it. I mean you don't have to have a red outfit one day and then something almost the same in blue the next."
Westwood, dressed in her usual wacky style with an image of Julian Assange on her T-shirt, said today's Red Label collection also carried the theme of quality over quantity - but that does not mean less glamour.
"It's for anybody that wants to dress up quite wonderfully glamorous. All I can say is it's quite a short collection this time because what I'm trying to aim for in my second line and all my offshoot products is to just keep aiming for quality all the time and have less quantity.
"I'm just trying to do a quality choice for people to wear something that really helps them to look good. That's what fashion is here for. It's here to help," she said.
The show saw models move through various rooms in the contemporary art gallery and featured perhaps a more toned-down Westwood style. Her trademark structured dresses were evident, along with gold boots, prints, metallics and velvet heels.
Other big shows taking place on Sunday in various locations across the capital include Mulberry, Temperley London and Matthew Williamson.
