It’s Been A Bad Week For The Fur Industry

Donatella Versace declared fur “over” for the Versace label this week, she joined other designers to have newly taken a pledge to go fur-free like Armani, Gucci, Tom Ford, and Michael Kors.

“Fur? I am out of that. I don’t want to kill animals to make fashion. It doesn’t feel right,” the Italian designer told Luke Leitch in an interview for The Economist’s 1843 magazine.

But most importantly San Francisco literally banned fur and fur sales – becoming the largest city to do so.. in history!

Faux-fur on the runway

This is a wonderful week for animals who are truly tortured – vaginally or anally electrocuted and caged in such tiny areas that they often chew off their own limbs having gone mad. There is NO need to participate in such cruelty when brands like House Of FluffShrimps, Pelush, and Stella McCartney offer such chic and eco-conscious faux-alternatives! On a budget? You can pick up most of these brands for a fraction of the price on (then it’s also super eco, since it’s pre-loved!)  There are also endless faux fur options on amazon!

UPDATE: Days later DKNY and Donna Karan ALSO vow to stop using fur!
