DECODE THE DEAR VIVIENNE LETTER
Inside Dear Vivienne, you will find the clues you need to decode Vueltta’s letter – which thanks Dame Vivienne for her work and activism. As you play, you’ll discover more about Vivienne’s life, campaigns and iconic collections.
Through Dear Vivienne, Vueltta hopes to introduce Vivienne’s work to a new audience. They also aim to highlight the connections between Vivienne’s legacy of ‘anti-fashion’ rebellion with the counter-cultural creativity of today’s digital worlds.
In the final decade of her life, Vivienne made all of her catwalks digital to reduce their climate impact, and promoted ‘anti-fashion’ – a more conscious approach to fashion. This placed self-expression and well-made designs over ‘fast-fashion’ and consumerism (which Vivienne believed had begun to dominate the fashion industry).
JOIN THE ANTI-FASHION CATWALK SHOW + PHOTOSHOOT
To celebrate this legacy, join us on Thursday 30th March at 7pm UTC for the Dear Vivienne Anti-Fashion Catwalk and Photoshoot. Walk the catwalk in your most ‘anti-fashion’ wearables and have your photo taken for an IRL exhibition later this year!
