New York Fashion Week is always a busy time for PETA, as we urge designers, retailers, and clients to be compassionistas by shunning clothing and accessories cruelly made from animal fur and skins. If, like me, you were unable to attend (my invitation must have gotten lost in the mail), here's some of what you missed:
Although, in the bizarro world of fashion, this late-summer show was displaying spring lines, and we should be seeing less fur this winter—as Karl Lagerfeld said during Paris Fashion week in January, "For the winter, the big trend is fake fur. Not real fur, fake fur." So even the holdouts need to be ready to flaunt their faux and shed their skins, and we've got 'em covered!

Ralph, it appears that they were painted as the animals whose fur patterns are often printed. You've made other negative posts on other files.. if you don't like it, you don't have to read it... I think what Peta is doing is great, and they should keep up the good work with peaceful protests :)
I was at this 'protest' and frankly, a little disappointed. This was a 1/2 hour photo op across the street where there was little foot traffic and poor visibility. I was fortunately able to cross the street and distribute leaflets at the venue itself, where I was addressed with questions from the public and school reporters, photographed with my poster and able to force my leaflets on some more recognizable fashionistas. The girls in makeup were long gone at this point.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
