Vivienne Westwood and Lee Jeans
launch new online art installation

Vivienne Westwood Anglomania and Lee Jeans are launching an online installation entitled ‘100 Days of Active Resistance’. The brands are encouraging communication and individuality through an online installation sharing interpretations of Vivienne Westwood’s Active Resistance. 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. “It is not enough to follow world politics, see films and read the prize-winning best seller. This is superficial, you need to go deep 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.” – Vivienne Westwood. Vivienne Westwood will celebrate the launch of the website and its collaboration with Lee at the London W1 stores with an exhibition of Vivienne Westwood denim pieces from past to present on the 8 of September coinciding with Vogue’s Fashion Night Out.
