Fashion designer Phillip Plein offended everyone when he held a gun themed fashion show. The autumn/winter 2013 runway show took place at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Milan, Italy. The Inquisitr reported on Jan. 15 that the designer sent models down the runway armed with massive weapons.
The male models walked down the runway, shirtless. They were covered with tattoos that said, "Only kill for real love." They also were armed with automatic weapons and gas masks.
The fashion show appalled everyone in the audience. It's also disrespectful to the U.S. government's recent talks about changing the gun laws. Attendees thought Plein's fashion show was done in poor taste.
This also comes days after the one-year anniversary of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. Fashion writers and journalists shared their disgust in the fashion show. Hilary Moss, New York Magazine reporter said:
"Fashion proved (once again) how painfully out of touch it can be with the rest of the world. If it were anyone other than Plein, we'd applaud him or her for trying to, uh, start a conversation about gun control."
The Huffington Post said they were "flabbergasted" by Philip Plein's latest runway show. The news site also called his shows "shticks." This fashion designer is known to shock. Last year, he sent a transgendered model named Lea T. However, this gun-themed fashion show seems offensive in light of what's going on in the world.
