LONDON (AFP) - Vivienne Westwood urged Prince William's wife Catherine on Sunday to stop buying so many outfits and to be more environmentally responsible in the way she dressed.

The eccentric British designer was speaking to reporters before her show at London Fashion Week, where she handed out a "climate revolution charter" which called on people to "buy less, choose well, make it last".

Westwood, a long-time environmental activist, was asked what advice she may have for the Duchess of Cambridge, who has become a style icon since marrying into the British royal family in 2011.

"I don't have any advice to her, except I think it would be great if she wore the same clothes over and again, because that's very good for the environment, and it would send out a very nice message," Westwood said.
