I had the opportunity to meet the designer, John Bartlett, when his dogs were photographed for RESCUE PAWS. He is an amazing designer and a very caring animal lover. He adopted two dogs. He was so nice and welcoming – such a true gentleman. He also stands agaisnt the fight of the usage of FUR. When we have so many options these days for FAUX FUR why are we still brutally hurting animals and wearing real fur.
I made a special collection for CARAVAN using faux fur – you can’t even tell the difference except our way is more HUMANE – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVVMijmJ_pE
I work in fashion and I can’t make choices for the designers I work with but I encourage them to not use FUR. It is just gross.
As John Bartlett says – “Try to make a difference and give a voice to those who cannot speak for themselves.”
