As reported in several news outlets and on the papierdoll blog, PETA protesters crashed the Julien McDonald fashion show yesterday in London. The protesters stormed on stage at the show as a model walked down the runway. Not getting enough of a handle at the show, security was unable to stop the protesters as they stormed again while McDonald came out to receive applause for his line.
While there was no fur on display this year, McDonald’s line last season bravely boasted a full complement of fur items. The PETA activist signs warned that fur is dead.
As a result of the debacle, security, according to London fashion week officials, has been beefed up.
