We’re a little late to the game on this story, but it’s the kind of good news that we just have to share!

Norway made history earlier this month when the country announced they would ban fur from Oslo Fashion Week in February. This decision makes Norway the first country to ban fur at the popular biannual runway event.

Thanks can be given to fur-free designer Fam Irvoll and the Norwegian animal rights group NOAH, which organized a candlelight vigil back in November against the fur industry. Along with peaceful protests, the group also gathered signatures from over 200 designers, models, and photographers who all refused to support the brutal industry.

“It has been a very natural choice for us because we do not want the OFW to appear as an arena in which to promote products based on the treatment of animals [as] prohibited by animal welfare concerns in several countries,” said Paul Vasbotten, the general manager of OFW.

We are totally impressed with Norway for this fashion-forward decision and hope that other countries and cities jump on board soon. To get the fur look without all the gross violence, visit Imposter4Animals.com. It is without a doubt our favorite faux fur line!
