Late last year, it was announced that a documentary was in the works on fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, to be released later in 2018 on March 31.

The Westwood camp released a statement on Twitter over the weekend, expressing their dismay with the lack of focus on the designers activism, saying, "The Vivienne Westwood documentary set for release this year, 'Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist' has been made and produced by a third party and as it stands is not endorsed by Vivienne Westwood.

Lorna Tucker asked to film Vivienne's activism and followed her around for a couple of years, but there's not even five minutes of activism in the film, instead there's lots of old fashion footage which is free and available to view online. It's a shame because the film is mediocre, and Vivienne and Andreas are not."


The statement comes following last week's announcement from the house of Versace, denouncing the American Crime Story television series that debuted this week, depicting the events surrounding the murder of Gianni Versace.

At present, the film is still slated for release as planned.
