London Fashion Week: Fall '08 Collections

... But here in London, there's still a rebel spirit...Then there's Vivienne Westwood, the oldest young designer in the business, returning to the London catwalk for the first time in nine years, with a cross-dressing model in a pair of "Guantanamo orange" panties with the slogan "Fair Trial My Arse" across the backside.

These are designers who have something to say!

Of course, none of it looked as good as Westwood did taking her bow. Orange hair flying, she walked the runway in a sparkly shrug and the highest heels in the room.

A true London original.
