Milan Fashion Week just got a bit more interesting.
At Thursday's Just Cavalli show, a protester reportedly jumped on the runway and had to be removed. Some editors tweeted that the individual was demonstrating against fur, while Chiara Campione of Greenpeace Italia tweeted that the protest was against sandblasting, a process used to distress denim that's been linked to silicosis (an incurable lung disease) in the garment workers who do it.
We haven't seen photographic evidence of the aforementioned crashing yet, but editors were front row and tweeting:
This wouldn't be the first time that anti-fur protesters made their views known at Fashion Week (or the first time a Milan runway was unceremoniously crashed). But jumping the stage at one of Milan's most well-regarded shows? That's a bold move, animal lovers.
Keep an eye out for photos (or Vines!?) of the protest.
UPDATE: Here's at least one photo of the moment, posted on an Italian fashion site.
UPDATE II: The protest was staged by Nemesi Animale, an animal rights group in Italy. A rep told us the protest was intended to make an anti-fur statement and "to spread a campaign we just launched to ban fur farming in Italy." The signs held up by demonstrators read "Your fashion -- their death" ("La vostra moda -- la loro morte"). See a video here.
