Vivienne Westwood has announced that she will be hosting a night at the newly reopened Fabric in support of green energy and against climate change. SWITCH, in collaboration with Climate Revolution, is set to take place in late February and will feature A Guy Called Gerald. Westwood has announced that the dress code will be 'Mad Max', based off the film where an impoverished population fight among themselves after society has fallen apart.
Dame Viv is doing her bit to make the country like the Tom Hardy-starred movie with her next club night NO-TAX: a call on the government to reduce - if not scrap - tax for her fashion label, since paying for all those doctors and teachers meant she stashed millions of pounds in a Luxembourg company. Hopefully if everyone heeds Westwood's call and reduces their carbon footprint then it'll make up for the shortfall in anti-climate change schemes Westwood's tax could've paid for. At least the Green Party received £300,000 from her personally...
The dress code for NO-TAX is 'bowties, waistcoats and top hats' - don't worry, they're punk now - while other confirmed DJs include fellow tax avoiders Gary Barlow, Arctic Monkeys and U2. The event will be staffed by volunteer interns, similiar to the ones who work in Westwood's London office on 10-to-6 daily hours for precisely no pay. But with everyone's hard work, hopefully the polluters and taxman will hear the message from clubgoers and taxpayers alike: SAVE THE ENVIRONMENT, LAY OFF THE TAXES!
