Animal rights protesters disrupt Burberry show

Guests attending Burberry’s catwalk show at London Fashion Week have found their usual red carpet welcome replaced by heckling protesters.

Dozens of animal rights activists made a loud racket Saturday outside the luxury brand’s show venue in London’s Clerkenwell area, crowding around the entrance and shouting “Shame on London Fashion Week!”

Some held devices showing animal cruelty videos and others held placards reading “Fur is passe.”

Police and security guards ended up forming two human chains to allow guests, including US Vogue editor Anna Wintour, to pass through and enter the highly anticipated show.
