Make it Work – Without Fur
Project Runway host and chief creative officer of Liz Claiborne, Tim Gunn has a message for designers at this year’s New York Fashion Week: Don’t use fur!
Along with PETA fav’s Taraji P. Henson and Olivia Wilde, Tim appeared Thursday night at Stella McCartney’s boutique with rep’s from PETA to spread the gospel of animal rights activists everywhere! He spoke out to fellow designers saying:
“I’m on a campaign to get as many fashion designers as possible to stop using it. I’d just like to sit with them and have a talk and ask, ‘Is it really necessary?'”
It’s so awesome to hear such influencial people in the fashion industry saying no to fur, as well as designers themselves, like Stella McCartney who is a longtime supporter of animal rights and doesn’t use leather or fur in her designs. If Stella can do it, ANYONE can do it!
