Faux fur is the fashion industry’s perfect animal-friendly alternative.
With more than 50 million animals being killed for their fur each year, there is still a long way to go before the fashion industry wipes its hands clean of animal cruelty. But the great news is that faux fur was a MASSIVE front runner at 2018 MBFWA.
In fact, the movement toward faux fur has been in motion for decades, with iconic models such as Naomi Campbell and Cindy Crawford declaring in 1994 that they’d “rather be naked than wear fur” as part of a PETA campaign.
Recently luxury fashion labels Versace, Gucci and Armani are among those who have ditched real fur in favour of the cruelty-free alternative. Vogue Australia’s sustainability editor, Clare Press saying:
“Fashion is all about what’s modern, what’s chic, what’s cool… and cruelty isn’t cool anymore.”
