Vivienne Westwood Signed Shoes
Dame Vivienne Westwood’s popularity knows no bounds. Original and outrageous, the iconic British designer is one of the most recognised and influential designers of the late twentieth century. Her punk attitude is more alive now than in the movement’s Seventies heyday, and her outspoken Union Jack waving Englishness is undiminished. Cutting edge but classic, her collections are unflinchingly rooted in her interests and beliefs.
Vivienne is one of Small Steps Project’s longest-standing supporters. This year, she has donated a pair of tan leather and purple suede boots from her collection, signed on the left boot with a heart symbol.
"The Rotten Financial System is based on fossil fuels, runs on debt and accumulation of interest. It is now self-perpetuating – serviced by banks, corporations, politicians. In fact it is a War Economy. There is a lot of opposition at the moment to the economic status quo which manifests itself as hatred against our fellows. The Small Step Project is part of this opposition. I am proud and happy to be on board."

Small Steps Project is a UK charity that wants to inspire everyone to take a small step, because together it is possible to make a difference.
From people volunteering their skills and attending their events, to companies donating their products and services, Small Steps raises funds that go to those who need it most. First, they provide emergency aid, shoes and food to children and communities living on municipal rubbish dumps around the world. Then they provide support for children to take steps into education, and adults into employment.
They deliver their projects in two phases. In the first phase they deliver emergency aid distribution projects, providing items that will protect people from the immediate dangers on rubbish dumps—from shoes, gloves and clothing to mosquito nets, food and water. This enables them to establish the demographics of the dump and devise and implement the second phase of sustainable projects that aims to reduce the time children spend on dumps and support them in taking small steps into education.
Small Steps Project makes documentary films and organises campaigns, such as Celebrity Shoe Auctions, to boost awareness and raise funds for this huge, but often overlooked, global situation.
