Westwood speaks up for Scottish independence

Legendary designer Dame Vivienne Westwood has told the fashion industry that an independent Scotland could be a 'model to us all'.

Queen of Tartan Westwood, 73, clad mostly in black, posed for the cameras with fellow designer Andreas Kronthaler in a tartan jacket, kilt and black knee-length socks at the ninth annual Scottish Fashion Awards in London on Monday.

The designer believes an independent Scotland would be a very 'people-friendly' society.

Also pictured is the founder of the event, Tessa Hartmann, who had the pleasure of inducting Westwood into the events Hall of Fame to mark her contribution to the fashion industry. She thinks it would be a shame if Scottish fashion were excluded from British fashion and believes Scottish designers would miss the opportunities and support of the industry in London.

Among the famous faces watching Westwood pick up her award were singer Pixie Lott, TV presenter Jenni Falconer and the band Twin Atlantic.
