Good news, baby Ecos (that’s you)! The Humane Society Of The United States is teaming up with celebrity designer, Charlotte Ronson, on a fur-free mission during the 2008 New York Fashion Week. 

In the past, Ronson has designed for celebrities like Lindsey Lohan, Kate Moss, Jessica Simpson and Gwen Stefani, but until recently she was rather indifferent on the whole fur issue. Then, last November, Ronson attended The HSUS’  “Cool vs. Cruel” awards ceremony and quickly joined the ranks of such renowned designers as Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Stella McCartney and Tommy Hilfiger by saying “Hell frigin NO!!” to “fashionable” fur!

Ronson takes the cruelty-free lifestyle a step further by giving out HSUS fur-free buttons in her downtown NYC store. Plus, during fashion week, she will be attaching red heart-shaped “No Fur” buttons to each of her faux fur jackets.  So PETA members, listen up: if you see someone walking down the street in a fur coat, do not-I repeat-DO NOT spray paint, pee on, or light it on fire until you’ve checked for the red heart-shaped fur-free button. Got it?

If I’ve tickled your fancy with all this faux fur banter, then you should totally check out her show on Monday, February 4th, at 3:00 pm at the Altman Building (135 West 18th St.) right here in NYC!!  Oh yeah, and tell them Ecorazzi sent you!

    That is the best fashion week news I have ever heard. I don’t know how people could even fathom using fur anymore with all the awful videos and proof out there.

    I’ve hardly seen anybody wearing fur where I live this winter. Probably partly because of the weather but also I like to think public opinion is turning against this horrible “fabric”.
