Tim Gunn to designers, buying public: No fur!
Question of the Day
NEW YORK (AP) - "Project Runway" host Tim Gunn and actresses Taraji Henson and Olivia Wilde have a "no fur" message for designers showing collections at New York Fashion Week.
"I'm on a campaign to get as many fashion designers as possible to stop using it," said Gunn, chief creative officer of Liz Claiborne. "I'd just like to sit with them and have a talk and ask, 'Is it really necessary?'"
The three appeared Thursday night at Stella McCartney's boutique with representatives of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. McCartney is a longtime supporter of animal rights and doesn't use leather or fur in her designs.
Gunn said he wants both fashion designers and consumers to be informed about decisions they're making when creating and buying clothing.
Henson, a 2009 Academy Award nominee, strikes a sultry, nearly naked pose in the latest ad for PETA's "Fur? I'd Rather Go Naked" campaign.
"There are other products we can use," she said. "Get a fake fur."
