We don't expect much in the way of political awareness in the fashion industry, but still: With the drama unfolding in Egypt and Human Rights Watch documenting at least 297 people killed and many thousands injured, designer Kenneth Cole thought it would be hilarious to tweet that "millions are in uproar in Cairo" about his new spring collection. He later apologized the joke was perhaps "poorly timed." You think? Enterprising activists agreed, coming up with a store window and "Egypt catalog" that expressed their outrage.
A real-life death in Cairo.
