A group of protesters plans to infiltrate the Calvin Klein show at 2 p.m. today by persuading attendees to wear makeup that gives the illusion of eyes dripping blood. The look is designed to show solidarity with protesters who have been pepper-sprayed and to draw attention to the conditions of the 99 percent — certainly a demographic that isn’t often considered in Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week...protesters will march to the Calvin Klein show from Zuccotti Park, and will set up a tent for applying the eye makeup. They hope to persuade 99 attendees to wear the makeup, but if they do not reach that quota, they plan to “close down” the 3 p.m. show, also Calvin Klein. [WaPo]
