New York’s Fashion Week is coming up, and as such Tim Gunn is campaigning for designers to stop using fur in their collections. Amazing!

The Project Runway host gathered with PETA representatives, Oscar nominee Taraji P. Henson, and actress Olivia Munn on Thursday night at Stella McCartney‘s boutique to call for a “no fur” policy.

“I’m on a campaign to get as many fashion designers as possible to stop using it,” said Gunn, who is the chief creative officer of Liz Claiborne. “I’d just like to sit with them and have a talk and ask, ‘Is it really necessary?'”

The group of celebs represents some of the most forward thinking in the biz. McCartney has been a longtime animal rights advocate and vegan who doesn’t use leather or fur in her designs, Gunn was named one of PETA’s people of the year (2009), Henson recently posed for PETA’s “Fur? I’d Rather Go Naked” campaign, and Munn has worked with PETA to protest circuses.

It’s great to see these influential celebs taking a stand against fur, especially since many designers, like Donna Karan, are still using animals in their collections.

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
