MILAN — Vivienne Westwood, the British designer known for her eccentric fashion, dedicated her latest menswear collection to Bradley Manning, an American soldier currently on trial in the U.S. for leaking classified material to the website WikiLeaks. He was arrested in May 2010 in Iraq.
During the show for next summer, presented Sunday, the second day of Milan Fashion Week, models walked down the runway wearing a large badge with a picture of the soldier on it, and the word “TRUTH” written at the bottom in bold white letters on a red background.
At the end of the show, the designer herself came out for a runway bow wearing the same badge.
