London – Wearing sexy rubber miniskirts and latex-trimmed police tops designed by Gaelyn and Cianfarani, a pair of sexy “fashion police” – members of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) – will hand out violation notices to people attending two separate London Fashion Week events on Sunday. Why? Because the two shows are expected to feature fur, which “violates the code of common decency”:
Date: Sunday, 13 February
Times: 9 a.m. (Ben De Lisi) and 12:30 p.m. (Julien McDonald)
Place: Battersea Park, Chelsea Bridge entrance, Queenstown Road
Why is PETA out to bust fur-wearers? Animals trapped for fur suffer excruciating pain, often for days, before their chests are stomped on or their necks are broken by trappers. Beavers caught in underwater traps struggle frantically before drowning. On fur farms, animals spend their lives in tiny, filthy cages, where they suffer physical and psychological distress before being killed by poisoning, gassing, anal electrocution or neck-breaking.
Fur is a relic of prehistoric times, when it was the only thing to keep primitive people from freezing. Today’s lightweight synthetics, such as Gore-Tex, are much more efficient at keeping people warm. Faux fur or no fur is more in tune with current concerns about the mistreatment of animals.
“We hope that by showing a little of our skin, we’ll help save animals’ skins”, says PETA Campaign Coordinator Jodi Ruckley. “Innocent animals on fur farms live behind bars for their entire miserable lives, when it’s the people who kill them or wear their skins – and fur designers – who deserve to be treated like criminals.”
