Designer vivienne westwood, who is a longtime environmental advocate, will not only serve as one of the judges for this year's competition but will also mentor the winner. Amis Cameron hopes that this mentorship will be a learning experience for both designers. "That's really exciting to me – being able to have established designers really rethink the way they are making clothes for the world because it really isn't just about a pretty dress. The more we can shift that consciousness, that thinking, with established designers, the more it's going to come into the mainstream," she says.
Ripped-up plaids may be Vivienne Westwood's specialty, but that doesn't mean she can't design tiaras. The designer rolled out the Gainsborough Collection (fronted by Georgia May Jagger) in Paris this week, which featured delicate, trompe l'oeil palladium creations including a tiara, necklaces, and diamond and sapphire earrings.
But tiaras — aren't those reserved for brides and princesses? Why on earth is a scruffy, punky personality like vivienne westwood uk designing such a thing? Well, the lady's got an explanation for everything: “You can just have quite messy hair, and just shove a couple of grips in it, and have this tiara and a scruffy little dress or whatever. It’s a way of dressing. You can wear rubbish and you can just put that on and it does something for your hair and everything, so I like tiaras.” Noted. Next time we're going to a hardcore show, we'll definitely bring our daintiest diadems.
Dame Vivienne Westwood, one of the most influential designers of our times, launches 'Gainsborough Palladium jewellery'  with Georgia May Jagger as the face of the collection. The nine pieces include three 'couture' designs shown here and were inspired by Westwood's "Paper Jewellery" show of 2000/01.
Though the ornate designs and particularly the tiara, remind me of the opulent and elaborate jewels of Gainsborough's portraits of aristocratic ladies in the late 18thcentury, the jewels emphasises the lightness and strength of Palladium.
Vivienne Westwood's wit and playfulness is evident as she deconstructs our idea of stately jewels and leaves us with hauntingly beautiful empty frames. The vacant metal openings suggest the ghosts of precious stones that may once have graced these  ornaments and hint at the frailty of the jeweller's art. The intricate details wrought in fine Palladium wire are as light as a spider's cobweb accentuated by dewdrops of little diamonds and sapphires.
Appropriately, Georgia May Jagger, a society girl of our times has been chosen as the face of the collection and the campaign shot by Juergen Teller, a modern portrait artist, . Vivienne Westwood said, "We chose Georgia May because she's absolutely gorgeous. She's so beautiful and looks wonderful in the jewellery."
