Design Industry Group Casts Out Seal Coat, Welcomes Faux Leather

April 2002

After being tipped off by a Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS (DIFFA) insider that its “Pure 2002” Dallas Collection fashion show was to include a seal fur coat designed by Michael Faircloth (Laura Bush’s designer), we wrote the foundation a letter demanding that all fur be removed from the show. DIFFA executive director called PETA to say that the seal coat was sent back, and Faircloth was told to submit something else. DIFFA even went a step further by including nonleather jacket and bag (donated by us) in its event.
