She warned non-essential workers would ‘invade the public space’ of workers who have to work’. 

‘The world has changed, some of us have lost our loved ones to corona,’ the designer said. ‘Should you go to work, you who have a choice, you will invade the space, the public space, of those who have to work. You must make the decision.’ 

It is the latest in a series of ‘Friday speeches’ recorded by the fashion designer during lockdown. 

Dame Vivienne, a passionate environmental activist, used the time to draw attention to the destruction being done to the natural world. She also called on followers not to trust ‘the Government or the Press’.

The fashion heavyweight opted for a typically eccentric outfit for the recording, pairing her illusion tights with a bias cut top from her own label.  

She finished the look with elbow-length gloves, a printed hat and a large scarf draped over her shoulders. 

Last year Dame Vivienne made headlines when she called herself an ‘angel’ of the environment as she spoke about how she is making her clothing label more eco-friendly.

Speaking to French magazine Paris Match, Dame Vivienne championed the work she is doing to reduce her brand’s carbon footprint, revealing she is choosing the environment over money by releasing smaller collections that are more eco-friendly.

She also praised the work of Greta Thunberg, 16, saying she had done more to further the cause than most heads of state.
