Last November, Vivienne Westwood and her husband Andreas Kronthaler headed to Peru with the charity Cool Earth — an organization that raises funds to stop rainforest destruction, and helps to pull locals out of poverty by providing them with better health care and education. 

Westwood and Kronthaler, who made a £1 million donation to Cool Earth prior to the trip, traveled to the Rio Ene Valley, where they stayed among the Ashaninka tribe and adopted some local customs — like, washing in nearby rivers, and participating in shamanic healing ceremonies. 

The 71-year-old did bring along a few familiar items from home, though — her clothes! Check her out hiking along the Amazon trails in some Vivienne Westwood originals.

We suggest taking a peek at Cool Earth's website to learn more about the charity and Vivienne Westwood's efforts to protect the rain forest. And, in the meantime, here's a video from the designer's Peruvian trip.
