Fashion and misogyny go hand in hand, and all good fashion designers love a bit of violence against women (come on, corsets...)
In support of this assertion feast your eyes on this, part of the Spring/Summer collection for Dior. (As reported by Vogue, link via Boing Boing).
According to the NYT, Galliano's new collection for Dior was launched to "the sound of whips and clanking chains", and models, erm, modeled "skirts splashed with fake blood".
I bet many a misogynist designer's pants were a chaffing that day what with all the excitement.
