Missoni Marches With Women's Rights

Some designers use fashion week as a political platform and Missoni made certain to make the most of this opportunity this season.

Models, including Gigi Hadid, strutted down the runway at Milan Fashion Week sporting pink pussy hats, which originated at the Women's March on Washington this past January.

Adding the signature Missoni stripes and zig-zag patterns around the caps, Angela Missoni joined the 40 models on the runway and handed out the statement caps to audience members at the show.

The female fashion designer spoke to the audience post-show, calling the catwalk a show of unity at "a time of uncertainty."

Some of the proceeds from the collection's sales will be donated to the ACLU and U.N. Refugee Agency, Vogue reports.
