Angela Missoni sends political message in Milan

Fashion talked politics at Missoni's Milan show with models strutting down the runway wearing pink knitted cat-eared hats, in a sign of support by creative director Angela Missoni for the recent mass protests against U.S. President Donald Trump.

In January, hundreds of thousands of women filled the streets of cities across the United States and Europe, in an unprecedented wave of rallies against Trump.

Many of the protesters wore pink "pussy hats", in reference to Trump's boast in a 2005 video - made public during his presidential campaign - about grabbing women's genitals.

"I wanted to have a regular show, but at the same time I thought that when I have a show my voice is louder, so I can use it for a good cause...to support the women march and movement, and for everybody who believes that we need to raise a voice for human rights," Angela Missoni told Reuters after the show.
