Dame Vivienne Westwood and Marie Claire have joined forces, to launch an exciting global project that both drives awareness of deforestation and influences the current trend of up-cycling your clothes.
Vivienne Westwood has designed a limited edition T-shirt dress exclusively for Marie Claire international readers. All proceeds from the sale of the T-shirt dress will support the forest tribes in Bangladesh, whose lives and livelihoods have been endangered by deforestation.
This global collaboration will combine the sale of the T-shirt dress with a special Rainforest editorial section (Guest Editor, Vivienne Westwood), which will be published in the Marie Claire May 2011 edition. To produce and sell the T-shirt dress online Marie Claire and Vivienne Westwood have partnered with the Fair Trade organisation People Tree. People Tree only uses 100% organic fair trade cotton and all their clothes are made entirely by hand, helping to create livelihoods for disadvantaged groups in Bangladesh, India and Nepal.
Buy this Vivienne Westwood Limited Edition T-shirt dress for only £28 from www.peopletree.co.uk and £7 from each sale will help support Forest Tribes
I'm a little unsure about the hemline but I love the print on it.
