In the latest episode of the CNBC Conversation, CNBC's Tania Bryer sits down with iconic fashion designer and punk priestess Dame Vivienne Westwood to discuss the British icon's career, her passions and how she got to where she is today.
While many know Westwood for her fashion empire and coming up with the original look for punk rock in the 1970s, the designer is also an avid environmental activist, having teamed up with numerous campaigns to promote a greener economy.
"One thing that I think that activists need to do is to try to tell people what this new world would be if we swapped this terrible financial system for a fair financial system because this would. We've got to have a green economy and a green economy is a fair economy."
In conversation with CNBC, Westwood tells Bryer what she believes U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May could do to fix today's "rotten financial system" and how the U.S. government isn't resolving this issue either. Speaking of the U.S., Westwood throws in her opinion on the upcoming U.S. election and why she wouldn't vote for Donald Trump or "evil" Hillary Clinton.
"To me Hillary's evil and I think she's a war-mongerer. I don't expect the world to change with Hillary Clinton. You know we're all going for climate change. I'm not Pro-trump. If I would be American would not vote for either of them which I wouldn't not be able to vote for either of them except if there's a green person I would vote for a Green Person."
