jason_wu2With the inauguration still fresh in everybody’s mind, many people are psyched that Michelle Obama followed the advice of HSUS’s president Wayne Pacelle and decided to go fur-free for the special day. Too bad we can’t say the same about the man who designed Michelle’s gown. 

At the Inaugural Ball, Michelle Obama wore a Jason Wu dress and the designer subsequently received 4 million hits the very next day. Well it turns out that Wu has some massive plans for his fall 2009 collection…and by massive I mean massively cruel! 

Jason recently shared with Access Hollywood: 

“I’m doing a significant fur collection, and the message will be all about luxury.”  “Fashion is also sort of escapism, and women need beautiful dresses to lose themselves in.”

I mean what do you even say to that? Firstly, cruelty is never beautiful — duh! But also it seems like a really bad time to be investing in this idea of “luxury,” well with the economy in such rocky condition and all.  Oh you silly, silly man! 

If you’re still in the dark about the brutal fur industry, check out FurIsDead.com and see why fur-free is the ONLY way to be!
