Iconic British label Vivienne Westwood Anglomania and classic denim brand Lee Jeans are launching a website called 100 Days of Active Resistance – and they want YOU to be involved! Calling all you creative souls out there who’d love to see your artwork or photography online. Vivienne Westwood and Lee Jeans have united in a new campaign which is asking the public to participate by submitting a piece of artwork, photograph or slogan that best represents Vivienne Westwood’s idea of Active Resistance.
Speaking of the concept, Vivienne Westwood said: ‘It isn’t enough to follow world politics, see films and read the prize-winning best seller. That is superficial, you need to go much deeper 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 they live in.’ Wise words.
The site will launch on 8th September and will be celebrated with an exhibition of Westwood denim pieces from past to present at both West London stores. This also coincides with Vogue’s Fashion Night Out. Every day for one hundred days one image will be selected from submissions and shared online on www.ar100days.com. At the close of 100 days, the 100 chosen images will become a part of a London exhibition dedicated to the project.
So what are you waiting for? Get creating! If your interpretation of Vivienne’s Active Resistance hits the spot it could be online for thousands to see and be inspired by.
