After her show at London Fashion Week (February 17-22, 2012), Vivienne Westwood spoke her mind on the state of modern fashion.
Everybody looks like clones … We are so conformist, nobody is thinking. We are all sucking up stuff. We have been trained to be consumers and we are all-consuming far too much. What I’m saying is buy less and choose well.
I think what Vivienne is talking about is style. What people lack is individual style. They might be decked out in the latest designer must-haves, but there’s no personal touch, no pizzazz. Take a look at what Vivienne is wearing in the photo above : a t-shirt, baggy trousers, and platform shoes with colorful socks – that is individual style.
