A common misconception among ethical fashion lovers is that Stella McCartney is a vegan designer. While the person Stella McCartney follows a vegan diet, the brand still uses silk and wool. Even so, we applaud Stella for the courage to refuse to use leather and fur – no easy feat in the world of high fashion, where the two aforementioned materials represent luxury and quality. As the use of fur continues to skyrocket through the runways, Stella has designed a line of ‘fur-free fur’ as a part of her AW15 collection, presented last week in Paris. Offering long-haired full-length faux coats, Stella showed that faux fur is every bit as stylish as the real deal – if not more so. After all, we are talking a type of fur that doesn’t smell of wet dog when rained on!
What do you think about Stella’s no-fur fur?
