To Fur or Not to Fur...



No matter what your opinion on fur, there's no denying that it was out in force from day 1 of NYFW...



































Faux, shearling, Mongolian, mink, shaggy, colour-blocked, striped - you name it. Furs of all colours and textures are dominating the street style game at New York Fashion Week. Freezing as it may be, the fluffiest materials were not only seen in coat form but found their way onto scarves, hats, hoods, bag charms and earrings. Fur is a fashion favourite not only because of its warmth, but also its ability to add volume and texture to any old outfit. A statement coat thrown over any ensemble will elevate the look to street-style cool.

  1. Please educate yourself on the realities of the fur industry. It is an absolutely disgusting and cruel trade. Nothing fashionable about it, and a huge shame that many like you promote it.

    1. Hi Molly. I have actually done a lot of research and educated myself about both sides of the argument on fur. As with most ethical debates they are not always black and white nor are people's arguments strictly fact based. Emotive and horrific videos are not the norm by today's standards and some also argue that faux fur is not as sustainable or Eco-friendly as real fur. Others tend to believe things they have seen on the Internet often presented in shocking but very biased and unsubstantiated ways. I'm not falling down on one side here and I guarantee many of the people pictured here are wearing faux fur and I have included faux options to shop as well. It is after all the 21st century - most people are able to educate themselves and make their own informed decisions. I am not intending to get into a full debate here - this post was about a trend and was not intended as a political forum. I do thank you for your comment though. Rachele

    2. If you do not intend to turn your blog into a political forum, then please consider making smarter choices on the content of your public blog. Obviously you are aware it is a controversial subject, and rightly so. In my mind, there is no justifiable means for killing animals for clothing. Like you said, it's the 21st century. We have many alternatives, and 'sustainable' or not, unnecessary death of sentient beings is something that will never be ok. Believing otherwise only shows either ignorance or cruelness. PS you can't use the phrase 'eco-friendly' when discussing fur at all. It's an oxymoron. And yes there are issues with the production of faux fur as well, hence the need to make responsible decisions there too.
