I love Vivienne Westwood. As far back as Naomi Campbell falling off those iconic platforms, to the fusion lines of today. I see tartan and I think of Vivienne. If you read the Sunday World magazine this week you will see I used her A/W collection to inspire my tartan infused outfits from the high street.
Anyway, a wonderful project is afoot, and I am delighted to be contributing to it. Vivienne Westwood Anglomania + Lee are launching an online installation entitled ‘100 Days of Active Resistance’ (www.ar100days.com). They are asking the public to participate by submitting an artwork or photograph that best represents Vivienne’s principle idea of Active Resistance.
“The principle idea of Active Resistance is that you get out of life what you put in and that real experience of the world involves thinking” – Vivienne Westwood.
100 days of positive thought, active change, speaking up and being heard. Vivienne Westwood Anglomania and Lee Jeans encourage communication and individuality through an online installation sharing interpretations of Vivienne Westwood’s Active Resistance.
“It is not enough to follow world politics, see films and read the prize-winning best seller. This is superficial, you need to go deep in order to understand who you are, what the world is and how things could be better. This involves culture which can only be acquired by self-education: human beings should mirror the world.” – Vivienne Westwood.
Every day for one hundred days one image will be selected from your submissions and shared online on www.ar100days.com from the 8th of September.
At the close of 100 days, the 100 chosen images will become a part of a London exhibition dedicated to the project.
Vivienne Westwood will celebrate the launch of the website and their collaboration with Lee at their London W1 stores with an exhibition of Vivienne Westwood denim pieces from past to present on the 8th of September coinciding with Vogue’s Fashion Night Out.
So stand up and speak out! Take a photo, write a slogan, create an image and show us your active resistance. Visit www.ar100days.com from the 8th of September and make a submission.
