Fashion icon Vivienne Westwood dressed in her usual controversial style with an image of Julian Assange on her T-shirt during her London Fashion Week 2013 catwalk show. She said today's Red Label collection carried the theme of quality over quantity - but not less glamour.

The designer was showcasing her collection at the Saatchi Gallery in London.

Speaking about Kate Middleton, she said that when the Duchess goes to so much effort to get an outfit that looks good, she should wear it more often.

She said of her own collection: "It's for anybody that wants to dress up quite wonderfully glamorous.

"All I can say is it's quite a short collection this time because what I'm trying to aim for in my second line and all my offshoot products is to just keep aiming for quality all the time and have less quantity.

"I'm just trying to do a quality choice for people to wear something that really helps them to look good.

"That's what fashion is here for. It's here to help," she said.

Before her London Fashion Week showcase at the Saatchi Gallery today, Dame Vivienne said that when Kate goes to so much effort to get an outfit that looks good, she should wear it more often. She said:

"I don't have any advice to her, except I think it would be great if she wore the same clothes over and again, because that's very good for the environment and it would send out a very nice message."

"If you're going to all that trouble to get an outfit that suits you, then you should keep on wearing it. I mean you don't have to have a red outfit one day and then something almost the same in blue the next."
