Quote of the Day: Vivienne Westwood on Buying Nothing


Photo credit: Mattia Passeri

If you ask me what I think people should be getting next season. I'll tell you what I'd like them to buy—nothing. I'd like people to stop buying and buying and buying...

There's this idea that somehow you've got to keep changing things, and as often as possible. Maybe if people just decided not to buy anything for a while, they'd get a chance to think about what they wanted; what they really liked.

—Legendary fashion designer Vivienne Westwood in the Oct. 4, 2007 edition of The Telegraph
