from Vivienne Westwood

This Auction has Ended

  • Description

    "Handmade with Love" in Nairobi, the Ethical Africa bag collection is produced in collaboration with the International Trade Centre (ITC) ­ a joint body of the United Nations (UN) and the World Trade Organisation (WTO) currently supporting the work of thousands of women micro-producers from marginalized African communities. The ITC empowers informal manufacturers and craftspeople to enter the international value chain - providing an income for some of the poorest people in the world. This promotes the growth of sustainable business in place of aid dependency and creates stability among these impoverished communities.

Vivienne Westwood's Playlist

New York has such brilliant art galleries. I love the Met: they've got such an amazing, wonderful collection of Impressionist and Chinese art. I have spent as long as three days in a row just looking at the Met's Chinese art. I really love that. I also love the Frick gallery for the Rembrandts and Vermeers.
