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.
