Fur Is Not Fashion

Fur Is Not Fashion

Hey Everyone!

I am sure alot of you are in to fashion trends, the latest styles, hottest shoes, handbags and designers. I know I have a tendency to get caught up in it. I did want to make everyone aware of some of the sad atrocities designers are doing to our helpless animals, all for the sake of fashion.

Did you know that Gucci sells boots made of seal fur. Gucci is responsible for the horrors of the Canadian seal hunt that have repeatedly been documented on video. Check out more on peta.org.

Burberry still sells fur.

Christian Lacroix directly funds people who skin, bludgeon, strangle, and electrocute animals for a living for their fur.

Valentino directly funds people who skin, bludgeon, strangle, and electrocute animals for a living for their fur.

Uggs are animal skin.

Alexander McQueen uses fox heads and bird skulls on his runway models.

The list can go on and on. Unfortunately because many people believe fashion is more important than the life of animals, these designers will continue to capitalize on the lives of them. Please read your labels, get to know your designers and their styles and don’t think that there are not trendy designers out there that do not use animals. Check out Stella McCartney, Juicy Couture, Prada (be cautious though), Ann Taylor, Ralph Lauren, Kenneth Cole and JCrew to name a few. I hope you can forsake fur for the sake of fashion.

Thanks everyone and have a great weekend!
