PHOTOS - (WARNING - NUDITY): Topless Feminists Protesters Crash Milan Fashion Week In Demonstration Against 'Anorexic' Models

Topless feminists clashed with police as they protested against the use of anorexic models outside the Versace fashion show in Milan Friday night [Feb 24]. The protesters, from the feminist group Femen, wore jeans and handwritten slogans such as ‘Fashion = Fascism’ and ‘Anorexia’ scrawled across their bare chests.


The three attractive women – understood to be model themselves – chanted outside the high-end fashion show while holding aloft handmade placards with the same mottos and ‘Models do not go to brothels’.

But Italian police forcibly blocked the protesters when they approached the entrance to the Versace Fall-winter 2012-2013 show during the Milan Womenswear Fashion Week.

Femen is a Kiev-based provocative women’s movement in Ukraine, founded in 2008 by Anna Hutsol. The organisation became internationally known for organizing topless protests against sex tourists, international marriage agencies, sexism and other social, national and international ills.

The organisation states its goals as ‘to develop leadership, intellectual and moral qualities of the young women in Ukraine’ and ‘to build up the image of Ukraine, the country with great opportunities for women’.

It now appears that campaigning against anorexia has shot to the forefront of their agenda following the continued use of size zero models in fashion shows across the globe despite increasing media and social pressure to put an end to the practice. The protest comes just two days before America’s

National Eating Disorder Awareness (NEDA) Week that starts tomorrow [Feb 26].
