Fur Flies at New York Fashion Week
Tsk tsk tsk. Michael Kors, didn’t your mum ever tell you that animal fur actually kills animals? I mean, you don’t expect these four-legged creatures to be walking around without their pelts, right?
New York Fashion Week is becoming New York Fur Week after an AP report says that “fur has turned into a must-have item for the fall”, with the runway seeing everything from fur-lined collars to cuffs to trims. As McCann-Erickson trend analyst Tom Julian said:
“If the past two falls have been about jewel-encrusted clothing, this fall will be all about fur-enhanced clothing. From outerwear to knitwear, from red-carpet gowns to skirts, fur is becoming the trim that women will have to have as part of their wardrobe real or faux.”
But it seems that even designer Kors, who is best know for his judging stint in the Heidi Klum-helmed reality show Project Runway, is taking things a bit too far by creating a mini-dress made entirely of mink. Not sure if it’s fur or fake, but either way, this is sure to have animal rights activisits up in arms.
