British Designer used a Tibet bag as an accessory in her Spring 2009
coollection at the recent Paris Fashion Show.

The bag had a Tibetan national flag with texts "Keep Tibet Alive".
Tibetan Society, UK, has produced the bag to create awareness of Tibet issue.

"The Tibet Society is delighted that Vivienne Westwood chose to use
our 'Keep Tibet Alive' as an accessory in her Spring 2009 ready to
wear collection," said Philippa Carrick, Chief Executive of the Tibet Society

"It is very encouraging and heartening to see such a well known
fashion designer and icon such as Vivienne Westwood showing her
support for Tibet by using our bag as an accessory in her collection.

demonstrations in March and the country remains under lock down.

Carrick further said that the Tibet Society is gravely concerned for
the thousands of Tibetans missing since the demonstrations and for
those still in detention. "I urge people not to forget Tibet and
follow Vivienne's example by raising Tibet's flag wherever they can
and showing China the issue of Tibet will not be forgotten."
