<div class="quote-block">When animal rights activists threatened two weeks ago to protest, the Seoul government had demanded that Fendi drop fur from the catwalk or risk the show's being canceling altogether.<br>
Fendi at that time had already poured in big bucks to prepare for the show, as well as sent invitations out to worldwide celebrities such as Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi.<br>
For the Seoul government, the Fendi show was a part of a string of celebrating events to promote a new culture center, the Floating Island, built on a man-made island on the Han River.<br>
It weaved in perfectly with Seoul's aspiring image as Asia's center of design.<br>
After behind-the-doors negotiation, Fendi compromised and took some fur out, instead including more items such as bags, shoes and accessories.<br>
The show was on.</div>

That's progress at least. Just goes to show that public opinion really does make a difference when enough people are passionate enough.
