Dame Vivienne Westwood takes over Purple TV this week!

Purple TV is pleased to announce an exclusive Takeover from Dame Vivienne Westwood. The legendary fashion designer and political activist picked five of her favorite and most inspiring videos to be shown on Purple TV to celebrate the release of her latest book “Get a Life: The Diaries of Vivienne Westwood.”

Published by Serpent’s Tail, and available to buy now on viviennewestwood.com, “Get a Life” documents the latest 6 years of The British Dame of Punk, Climate Revolution, fashion and activism.

“The Human Race: Our Survival. We are an endangered species. Our survival depends on becoming more human; for that we each need to engage with the world – not consume but live in harmony. I suggest:

a) when possible prepare your own food (‘Do it Yourself’). My own diet is without meat or grains. I am one of the world’s privileged people and can choose what I eat. Fruit and vegetables is my preferred food, delicious and aspirational. It is convenient to prepare and the most efficient for your body to use, supplying all the goodness and energy you need;

b) engage with the past through culture in order to understand the present. This will give you an anchor in life and a sense of personal progress;

c) inform yourself about climate change, listen to scientists; your outlook and behaviour will change ”
— Vivienne Westwood from “Get a Life”

Vivienne Westwood TV Takeover / The Weatherman – The Weather Underground

“On Nov 29th 2015 – We attended a March to stop climate change. Hyde Park Corner to Houses of Parliament. Politicians have abdicated their responsibility to care for people. They don’t know what they’re doing. We know what we must do.
Every one of the 70,000 who came on the march is an intellectual. The speeches were superb. This was drama of the highest order. Kate Tempest is a transcendent force: I was there!” — Vivienne Westwood
