Fake-for-Real Fur from Imaginary Animals
Here’s the solution for all you animal lovers who are also fashion lovers: Instead of a depressing campaign about animals killed for their fur, the genius World Wildlife Fund launched a clothes and accessories brand designed by Boudicca, a London designer’s collective.
Fur is indeed very fashionable these days, as we could see this winter. But if real fur is a sign of quality to some, it’s also a sign of cruelty and waste to others. WWF and Boudicca resolved this dilemma by creating furry clothes from imaginary animals. There is, for instance, fur from the very cute deer-seal “Bamboseal”. You can actually buy the fake-for-real furry collection on the Wonder World Fur campaign website. I must say that the design is as appealing as the concept. All fur is certified 100% imaginary.
But one question remains: Doesn’t seeing these adorable fantasy animals make us feel as guilty using their fur as the fur from real, live animals?
