The show did indeed go on for hated Uzbekistan dictator's daughter Gulnara "GooGooSha" Karimova, whose Fashion Week show was cancelled at Lincoln Center over human rights concerns. As was hinted at earlier this week, the show was moved to a private space on 42nd Street owned by Cipriani, but the event was made less-than-glamorous by dozens of protestors picketing outside.

Chanting slogans like "Child labor is a crime, hey Gulnara, it's about time" and hanging out flyers depicting children picking cotton, the protestors marched outside of the space as about 300 guests filtered in.
