Italian designer Roberto Cavalli had his Just Cavalli collection show of womenswear for Autumn/Winter 2013/14 interrupted by an anti-fur protestor at Milan Fashion Week on Thursday (February 21). The blonde dread-locked girl from anti-fur organization Visoni Liberi held up a sign saying 'A Vostro Moda A Loro Morte' (Your Fashion, Their Death) before being tackled by security and escorted out of the tent. The show continued as normal after the interruption with Cavalli's personal collection, which was inspired by the Himalayas. The Tuscan designer, known for his animal prints and leather-fringed jeans, said he wanted to celebrate youth at any age before showcasing an array of exotic prints inspired by the traditional Bhutanese culture. "It's not a celebration. A celebration maybe for me but people don't know," Cavalli said before the packed show hosted at the imposing Arch of Peace. "It's a celebration because after a few years, because you know Roberto Cavalli has a big staff and I love also for some times like to be the director of this orchestra but today with this collection I direct but also I play the instruments which means I did nearly all the collection by myself because Just Cavalli needs the power". The designer, who was with his German shepherd dog Lupo, created super-slim pants paired with outerwear in contrasting colors and mixed length. Cavalli used a vibrant color palette of blue, yellow, orange and red for his warm collection. The final dress of the collection was modeled by Georgia May Jagger, daughter of the rock star Mick Jagger, who walked the catwalk in a black embroidered red dress. Video Source: Reuters
