New York – Following the stir at Paris Fashion Week caused by Schiaparelli’s three-dimensional animal-head designs worn by Kylie Jenner and other models, a PETA model will strut her stuff at New York Fashion Week (NYFW) on Tuesday wearing a faux sheep’s head in a salute to and twist on the designer’s style—but sans wool, as 14 exposés by PETA entities have documented shearers on sheep farms worldwide beating, stomping on, and cutting open sheep as well as slitting their throats. The pop-up runway presentation will be outside Spring Studios, the center of NYFW.

When:      Tuesday, February 14, 12:30 p.m.

Where:    Spring Studios, at the intersection of St. Johns Lane and Beach Street, New York

“Schiaparelli’s ‘animal heads’ were creative but caused sheep to be thrown to the ground and cut, often to pieces, as their wool was stolen from them,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “With this cruelty-free spin, PETA is encouraging everyone to look to the future of fashion and choose fabulous vegan knits.”

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to wear”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please, listen to The PETA Podcast, or follow the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.

“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
