Unconventional Moments at New York Fashion Week: From Trash Bag Intruder to Animal Rights Protests
The Trash Bag Intruder
A controversial video went viral on social media during New York Fashion Week, capturing the attention of millions. The video shows a confident imposter strutting down the runway wearing a transparent garbage bag and a pink shower cap. Surprisingly, the audience failed to realize that this was all part of an elaborate prank, unrelated to the actual fashion show.
Astonishingly, only a few individuals in the crowd recognized that the intruder was not a legitimate model. The audience cheered and enjoyed what they saw, as the imposter confidently walked the fashion runway, attracting attention and applause. It wasn't until security intervened that the imposter was escorted out of the venue.
Unmasking the Intruder
According to "dailyo," a handful of keen-eyed users managed to identify the man behind the stunt as a popular internet personality named Fred Bayer. With a substantial following of over 65,000 on Instagram and nearly 300,000 subscribers on YouTube, Fred is known for sharing prank videos on his channel.
The fashion week was not short of controversial moments. In a previous event, a protester at the Coach 2024 fashion show took to the stage holding a sign that read "Coach: Leather Kills." Another protestor went as far as painting their body to resemble skinned leather. According to Metro UK, the sign aimed to raise awareness about the use of animal fur and leather in the fashion industry.
