FASHION WEEK DEMONSTRATION
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
Bread and Butter is a popular fashion trade exhibition at every Fashion Week in Berlin. Politically conscious fashionistas took to the streets of Berlin to present their own "Butt x Better" parody version to demonstrate against the commercial hype behind Fashion Week and especially to underscore the exploitation of poor garment workers in Third World countries where western fashion is produced. Demonstrators used recycled materials to improvise and create costumes and fashion designs which they paraded to the electronic sounds of a mobile disco.
