What better occasion is there than London Fashion Week to remind the fashion world how utterly unacceptable it is to wear the skin of dead animals?

Outside Somerset House today, three gutsy ladies did exactly that, stripping off to put into practice PETA’s famous slogan “We’d rather go naked than wear fur”! Somerset House - before the demo We'd Rather Go Naked Demo 2015 cameras   We'd Rather Go Naked Demo 2015 Hope, Katy and Monica took part in the demo to urge designers, journalists and shoppers to opt for clothing for which animals weren’t bludgeoned, gassed, strangled or electrocuted. After all, fashion should be fun, not fatal.
