Aspiring designer and contestant on ‘Project Runway’ Josh Christensen obviously hadn’t done his homework when he tried to use real fur for one of his creations last week. Rule one of reality TV competitions: Don’t offend the judge.
Tim Gunn, fashion rock star and judge on the popular show, told Christensen so that there would be no confusion, “We’re fur-free.”
Perhaps the designer hadn’t seen PETA’s fur expose that Gunn kindly narrated for them. Or maybe they didn’t read the news when Gunn said at an event at a Stella McCartney store, “I’m on a campaign to get as many fashion designers as possible to stop using it.”
Word to the wise for all future contestants, listen to Tim Gunn. Fur is never in style.
