Vivienne would like you to come to the demonstration outside the US embassy, Grosvenor Square at 2pm on Saturday 1st June - in support of Bradley Manning- ahead of his trial which begins on Monday 3rd June. Bradley Manning, a 25 year old US intelligence analyst, faces life in prison for sharing a video of a US helicopter attack that killed 11 civilians and wounded two children in Baghdad with the Wikileaks website.
He’s also been charged with blowing the whistle on the “Iraq War Logs”, the “Afghan Diaries”, the “Gitmo Files” and embarrassing US State Department cables. He exposed war crimes – he has not committed a crime. He’s been charged with telling us the truth. Bradley went before a US court and admitted he did pass the information to Wikileaks in the interests of the public. He couldn’t believe that we were doing these things in countries we were supposed to be protecting

You might have noticed the new DIY section by now. We want to inspire and encourage you to make things yourself. Stephen has sent us the first reply with a picture of the drape shirt he made. To make this shirt you need a little experience. The crown is very easy to make.
“Here’s my version of the drape shirt I made from the pattern I downloaded from the Worlds End blog, I used a really crisp shell cloth which drapes beautifully and I even used up some old brown Westwood buttons to finish. I’m a firm believer in DO IT YOURSELF and make about 45% of my own clothes because I work as a pattern cutter, so I'm used to sampling and sewing toiles. The rest of my wardrobe is about 50% Vivienne Westwood and the rest is thrifed, I really appreciate how Vivienne cuts her cloth from twisted fly’s on trousers to off centre necks on shirts and tops!”
