on my way to occupy dc last friday, i was shocked to walk past the local h&m and see people waiting in line–prepared to remain overnight until the versace for h&m was released the next day. h&m was only allowing each customer to purchase one size of each item; of course, creating a demand by releasing a limited supply.
people waiting overnight for clothes is craziness. especially when they’re gaudy and over-designed. i invited the versace-obsessed crowd to come with me to occupy dc where they could camp out for a cause, but unfortunately, no one was interested.
