fur free fashion…

…no one and i mean NO ONE needs a fur coat in this day and age. with the marvels of technology lending themselves to insular clothing and faux fur production reaching new heights, there is no need to slaughter innocent animals simply for their coats. i mean, humanity crawled out of the caves 190,000 years ago and into the 21st century thus negating the need to drape animal pelts around our bodies. unfortunately there are still those who cling to the neanderthal mindset that being wrapped in animal corpses is somehow attractive and a step up in rank. sticking a bone through your nose and a plate in your lip are both connotations of status that we’ve managed to outgrow in western society and really, wearing furs is right there on the same level. so please, keep in mind as the weather grows cooler that there are many retailers and fashion designers out there who say “no” to the slaughter of animals for fur. design against fur (the fur free alliance) and the humane society of the united states are fantastic organizations which can help you get more information regarding participating designers, retailers and programs that you can support to help end the barbaric exploitation of animals. and don’t kid yourself, that fur looks better on the animal than it does on you!
