Russell Simmons

“Fur is no longer being viewed as a way to floss and show off your status or bank account—it is now a billboard of cruelty on people’s back.”
—Russell Simmons,

He’s the founder of Phat Farm, so if anyone knows style, it’s got to be Russell Simmons. In his recent globalGrind blog post, Russell gave a shout-out to Tila Tequila, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, and Michelle Obama for speaking out against the fur industry and credited the ladies with marking “a shift in human consciousness.” Wow, Russell, we couldn’t have said it better ourselves!
