Masked crusader in fine style

Monday, January 16, 2012

A spandex-clad "super-heroine" helped raise temperatures a notch or two yesterday as dozens of protesters continued their angry demonstrations outside the Dolce & Gabbana store in Tsim Sha Tsui.

The protesters, at the store for the second straight Sunday although in fewer numbers, called on the Italian fashion house to apologize for preventing Hongkongers - but not mainlanders - from taking photos outside the shop. The masked heroine turned up around 3pm, carrying a placard saying: "Down with luxury brands. Against bias of locals."

Others pasted hell-notes and signs such as "Apologize or Get Out" on the door of the D&G shop, which was closed yesterday. "We will not stop our protests until D&G admits its mistake and offers a full apology," said one of the protest leaders, Chu Po-fang.
