Five anti-fur protesters stormed Roberto Cavalli's fashion show today in Milan, unrolling posters saying "Cavalli = cruelty" on the catwalk before they were dragged away by security staff.
Cavalli's sports-themed show for his Just Cavalli label had opened with a live brass band dancing on a mock football pitch, followed by models in broad-shouldered cropped jackets and thigh-skimming dresses to a backdrop of electronic score boards.
Amid the colorful parade, it took security a while to realize the animal rights activists were not part of the show.
"Sadly there are always people who disturb those who work, what can I do? I could impose stricter security controls but I don't think that'll make a difference," Cavalli told reporters afterwards, adding that he loved animals.
