PETA Hits the Burberry Catwalk
Oh, the drama that is Fashion Week.
I’ve gotta assume that our invites to Burberry’s exclusive “invitation only” unveiling of their Spring – Summer 2007 women’s collection today at Milan Fashion Week must have gotten lost in the mail.
Not to worry, we invited ourselves and wow, did we make a scene. Three activists, including peta2’s very own Violet, stormed Burberry’s runway today modeling their stylish “Burberry: Fur Shame,” banners and chanting “Fur is dead” to make a real fashion statment and remind all of the fashionistas in attendance that fur on their backs (or collars, purses, or shoes) is blood on their hands. One would think they’d be expecting us by now, I mean we’ve hit all the biggest fur pushers—Dior, Lagerfeld, Oscar De la Renta, Cavalli, Gaultier, Prada—so they really shouldn’t have been surprised to see us there. Nevertheless, long time PETA target Vogue editrix and resident fur hag Anna Wintour looked shocked and horrified from her front row seat…although, with a face as hideous as hers it’s kinda hard to tell when she’s shocked. Wouldn’t you think they’d have a special section quartered off for us with a direct shot to the catwalk by now? Our fearless ladies were escorted off the runway and released without harm. We’ll have more inside info from our fabulous Violet after she jets back to the UK from Milan—she’s the dog’s bollocks, our Violet—but for now, check out the smashing pix, and don’t forget to tell Burberry that murdering animals for their fur is just plain evil.
Take that, Burberry!
Violet storms the runway!
