Fashion is GREAT: Vivienne Westwood unveils new collection at British Ambassador's Residence in Paris

As part of the GREAT campaign and Paris Fashion Week, Vivienne Westwood today unveiled their Gold Label Spring-Summer 2013 collection at the Residence of the British Ambassador, Sir Peter Ricketts.

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government

Sir Peter Ricketts said:

“Fashion is a fantastic British success story. There is an incredible breadth of creative talent in the UK and Dame Vivienne is one of fashion’s most iconic figures, known to an international audience. We are therefore honoured and excited that she has chosen to unveil her latest collection here at the Residence.”

The GREAT campaign was launched by Prime Minister David Cameron in 2011 and shows why Britain is a world class destination for trade, tourism and investment by highlighting British excellence in areas such as design, culture, music, technology and creativity. Vivienne Westwood is a proud supporter of the campaign.

Over 500 guests from France’s creative sector and leading businesses attended the show.
