Her husband and creative partner, Andreas Kronthaler, had sweet words to say in a press release. magazine: “I will continue to be with Vivienne in my heart. We worked until the very end and she gave me so much to continue. Thank you, honey.”
The brand’s official announcement also includes details of the upcoming Vivienne Foundation, which will work with NGOs in four areas: climate change, ending war, protecting human rights and oppose capitalism.
