"I love the unisex theme of this collection. It is so relevant for Vivienne Westwood to reassert their activist mindset and create a collection that takes us beyond our current gender stereotypes with beauty and intelligence."

Westwood added: "At the time we were planning our next Gold Label AW15/16 show... I realised Gwendoline would be perfect and would fit the clothes, so I asked her to do it. She is such an attractive woman. When I asked her to be in the show, as well as the campaign, we got to know each other, she is a really interesting woman."
