Ho, Ho, Go Faux, Michael Kors

Written by PETA | December 16, 2010

Project Runway judge Michael Kors has been judged by Santa to be firmly lodged in the “naughty” column because of the designer’s continued use of fur. That’s why a clutch of angry Santas gathered outside of Kors’ Rodeo Drive flagship store yesterday, blocked the entrance, and chanted, “Michael Kors, where’s your soul? Selling fur will get you coal!” before they were stopped by intrepid police officers .

 

Who knows? Maybe Michael Kors’ heart will grow three sizes and the only fur in his next collection will be as fake as his tan.

    Are kidding me, I thought he stopped using real fur! Is it that important to people to wear real animal on their back?! Come on this is so sad that it’s even an issue…I hope he’s seen the videos of how terrible these cats, dogs, raccoons etc are treated and then skinned alive just to die and for what a piece of fucking clothing! This world is lame and I’m not vegan but to kill for materialistic reasons is insane an designers shouldn’t even get the respect they do if they use fur…or any animal skin

    GO VEGAN!

    DON’T EVEN WEAR FAUX OTHERS MAY THINK IT’S REAL AND BUY THE REAL THING, WHY DO PEOPLE TO WANT TO LOOK LIKE AN ANIMAL ANYWAY. FUR IS NOT SHIQUE IT’S SICK. I DON’T THINK IT WILL BRING ANY REAL HAPPYNESS TO THE WORLD. TRUE BEAUTY AND KINDNESS LIVES WITHIN. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORKS PETA!

  • Kristin says:

    Tina–I seriously doubt if those are fake.  Usually if its fake fur its not shaped like an animal.

    but I do agree with you that its crude and disgusting to be selling the fur of animals dead bodies.

    Go faux everyone!!!  And go vegan!!!  :)

    I just KNOW we can all make a huge difference!

    Tinay-I don’t quite understand your post. Faux fur is the way to go! (As long as it is truly fake and not dog, cat or some other fur.) Although I do think it’s nice to wear a pin or something that says it’s fake so people don’t think you’re promoting real fur.

    Let’s Hope!!! No, I would never think such a thing. Let’s hope his heart softens. That his Spirit has a Revelation of Kindness. When you head off to that Spirit World, you’re not taking the cold hard cash with you. It’s meaningless. The only thing that matters there IS your heart condition. Some of the greatest people in the world still believe the lies of HELL. But your heart is not disconnected from the rest of your BODY. Not your skin and certainly not your stomach. May the Wisdom and Revelation of God be with you, Michael………..WAKE UP!

    Faux fur is prettier and more fun than the real thing. Fur pelts eventually molt. There are endless possibilities for patterns and designs for faux fabrics. Anyone who believes that wearing fur makes them admirable due to their status symbol status is mistaken. It only makes them look ignorant.

    I saw fur and dead foxes at a market hut at a Christmas market on Tuesday: http://www.fraumenssen.de/unmoeglich/Heumarkt.JPG Yesterday I sent and e-mail to the market’s organizer and complained about this and told him that this is crude and obnoxious, even if the fur and dead foxes are no real ones. Now I’m waiting for an answer…

  • nancy says:

    He has the same old tired expression as Donna Karan. They don’t look like happy people even when they smile. Must be miserable to lack true empathy.

    Dear Mr. Michael Kors, If you are such a great american designer, why don´t you choose new materials for your winter collection without being an accesory to the murder of beautiful animals? Use your awesome creativity for good. Only ugly people wear fur.
