Did they get the memo? This year, fur was the end-all-be-all for coats in almost every collection. Whether as full on trim like on this fab coat from Venexiana or just as a subtle touch, like on the Jason Wu coat, its showing up on every catwalk.
However, this could serve as problematic as far as sales go for designers...with more and more celebs and consumers becoming outspoken against fur, these coats may not have a market to be bought it. Former model and television show host Tyra Banks prefers faux, and designers like Stella McCartney have been known to keep their lines fur free.
What's your stance on the whole faux vs. fur debate? Is it fashion, or cruelty?
