Watch: Fur-Wearer Attacked by Dancing ‘Animals’ in Fashion Week Performance

Written by Heather Moore | February 11, 2014

Masked “animals” sniffed, stalked, and bit a fur-wearer in front of Lincoln Center this afternoon. The animals—actually modern jazz dancers choreographed by James Koroni, the founder of Enforced Arch—carried the woman’s limp body off to mourn all the animals who were killed to make her fur coat.

This “performance,” organized by PETA, will turn heads and provoke debate among the models, designers, and buyers who are in Manhattan for New York Fashion Week.

    Hundreds of millions of animals are skinned alive each YEAR!! Fur farms need to be banned and all the rabbits and dogs and cats and minks etc. need to be set free. Great video. I saw a woman wearing fur a few days ago and she walked past me and said hello and I ignored her and looked back and all i could think of for the next day or two was how many animals were brutally and inhumanely tortured. Fur needs to be banned in every country in the world.

    I had the privilege of seeing this in person and it was great. As someone attending the shows to report on eco-fashion (of which there ain’t much at the main stage), I was prepared to see a lot of fur, but not as much as I actually encountered. So glad that PETA and Enforced Arch were there to put this tasteful, artistic spin on advocacy. Well done!

    Its a cool way to get attention to this issue – fabric sourced from animals should be banned. Go Vegan!! save animals and environment….Midwestern states need this kind of awareness

  • Not only are the Japanese killing dolphins but they’re killing whales, too! Just ask the crew of the Sea Shepherd who are trying to stop the Japanese off Antarctica. In the guise of so-called research ships they are slaughtering gray whales and processing them before they even get back to Japan! Are you kidding me! I thought they weren’t allowed to kill whales anymore. I guess you can when you have research on the sides of your sships! I even tried to call their office at the United Nations but no one spoke English. Unreal! You mean to tell me they can’t get other seafood that they have to after those poor mammals dolphins and whales! Do you think it could be the over a million dollars they get for just one whale! Money and greed, they go hand in hand!
