It was a battle of moral versus fashion here in the studio. There are endless other arguments on both sides of the debate offered by fur haters and lovers, who are equally passionate. So this remains a deeply controversial personal choice.On occasion, a fashion question crosses into ethics, is a good thing; it means that we are thinking about what we wear. In cases such as this, however, the answer is rarely simple.
But I like fur and all my jackets are vintage and about 30 years old. That’s my justification. So for me when I wear fur I feel, it’s about making a huge statement. You can approach me any way you like and feel my coat. You can throw abuse at me, give me looks that could kill. But my fur image is here to stay. Welcome to fashion.
For me fur has a history of being glamorous and a clear statement that it is a very individual choice. This is all about making a loud statement. Otherwise why would you put up with the abuse.
Fur is A Choice
Ultimately, wearing fur should not make you uncomfortable and embracing a garment that has aged for a decade or three is not going to make the difference.
Really, fur is fur and in the argument regarding the way the animals are slaughtered.
Well when is the last time you ate a big steak? Not seeing anyone stand outside a butcher and protest?
