Why is Real Fur Still in Fashion? (1 min read)

Hello Readers,

Fur has been a controversial topic in fashion for many years now and many designers still use fur within their collections. Peta are well known for protesting at many live fashion shows, throwing red paint over the designer’s creations. They had a massive campaign featuring several celebrities like P!nk, Eva Mendes, Khloe Kardashian, Taraji P. Henson called ‘I would rather go naked than wear fur’.

Many designers don’t use fur at all or just use faux fur within their collections. Calvin Klein was the first big designer to announce to no longer use fur within his collections after Peta crashed his offices to protest. He had a meeting with them and he was convinced never to use fur again. Many other designers have since also joined Calvin in the no fur campaign e.g. Stella McCartney, Ralph Lauren, Vivienne Westwood and Tommy Hilfiger to name just a few.

Does a designer really need to use real fur? Faux fur has been around since 1910 and has been going from strength to strength since and now looks amazing and feels great to. With faux fur looking just as good in my opinion as real fur, is there a need for real fur.

The animals that are being used within the fur trade are cruelly treated. The conditions they live in are squalor. They are poorly fed and are very rarely fed. The animals are normally still alive when they are skinned. No animal deserves to go through this treatment. No animal deserves to go through any of this, especially just for an item of clothing.

More designers need to make the change for their collections. Real fur was never needed on the runway and it deserves to be given the boot. Is the cruelty the animals suffer really worthwhile so that an item of clothing has the extra pizzazz? NO!!! I love fashion, I love keeping up the latest trends but not at the expense like this.

If you are undecided about this topic, then please just do a little bit of research on how the animals are treated and hopefully you will see how the torment they go through is not worth it just a piece of clothing
