Another designer has just added their name to the ever-increasing list of brands to merge lines and she's leaving Paris behind for good...

Vivienne Westwood has just announced that she's set to combine her collections and she will no longer show in Paris. The British designer confirmed the news that she's set to make a return to London Fashion Week, when she announced today that together with Andreas Kronthaler, Vivienne Westwood the label would: "reduce to its essentials". The move comes following a bid to "reduce the company in size," said Westwood, before continuing that it's about, "selling only what we love".

"Our whole structure will be directed by quality. Buy less, choose well, make it last. Together Andreas and I head the design teams for all lines," confirmed Westwood.

Vivienne Westwood will show at Paris Fashion Week one last time on October 1, but will take a new position at the London collection shows from 2017.
