Furry Fendi Flung From Fashion Show

Written by PETA | May 18, 2011

We at PETA have always known that fur is worn by beautiful animals and ugly people, and it looks like Seoul, South Korea, agrees. Fur-monger Fendi got into a hairy situation when it wanted to send a forest’s worth of animals down the runway at Seoul’s exclusive new Floating Island culture center.

After animal advocates lodged strong complaints with city officials, the officials told Fendi to sack the skins or pack up and leave. “We have clearly confirmed social sentiment against fur products,” said city spokesperson Jong-Hyun Lee.

Fendi refused, and now the fashion house has to look for a house in which to show its fall collection of cruelty. Fendi has just a few days left to choose between losing the fur and losing one of its biggest marketing events of the year.

This is a groundbreaking move for South Korea, which has historically been a big producer and consumer of fur. Hopefully, South Korea’s neighbor, China, will take note and give fur the cold shoulder too.

    I would love to take you men and hit you in the head and hang you up and skin you alive. I would love for you to feel the pain you put on other living things. I think it is the only way for humanes like this to understand the demon within them.

    I totally appauld South Koreo well done, lets hope China is taking note of this i really would not of expected this from South Koreo but im soo glad they have listened to the people and put a stop to this. As for Fendi being surprised with their decision to cancel, Fendi the world do’s not want real fur get with the times and follow suit with other designers around the world that have stopped using fur and then maybe you will get respect.
