Los Angeles – A box of sheep-shaped vegan chocolates is on its way from PETA to Blade Runner 2049 costume designer Renée April, who used laminated painted cotton to make Ryan Gosling’s slick, knee-length shearling-look coat.
“Sheep are kicked, punched, and stomped on in the wool industry, which slaughters young sheep to turn their skin into shearling coats,” says PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange. “Vegan is the future of fashion, and PETA is recognizing Renée April and Blade Runner 2049 for showing how chic—and kind—that future is.”
