Italian designer Angela Missoni brought politics to the runway Saturday during Milan Fashion Week. 

Supermodels, including Gigi Hadid and Romee Strijd, hit the runway wearing Missoni's version of the Pussyhat, which has become a symbol of the women's rights movement.

Thousands of women wore the pink, cat-eared hats on Jan. 21 during the Women's March on Washington as a sign of feminine solidarity.

"There is a bond between us that will keep us strong and safe; the bond that unites all those who respect human rights."

Missoni's version of the hats featured her signature bold stripes at the base. 

After the show, Missoni took a bow and asserted that women's rights are human rights, in an effort to keep the spirit of the Women's March alive, according to Agence France-Presse.  

The show's notes stated that Missoni's designs are meant for those who are "prepared to confront the conflicts and dilemmas of our contemporary society: the conditions, needs and rights of all women and minorities."

Missoni's collection will also serve more than a symbolic purpose, with some proceeds going to the American Civil Liberties Union and the UN Refugee Agency, Vogue reports
