010 Fake Fur and Leather: Friend or Faux?
To fake fur or not, that is the question. Nichole and Callie tackle this controversial topic, and suggest ways to make it werk werk werk for fashionistas everywhere!
In This Episode
Whether or not faux fur and leather are a good or bad thing is a hot button topic with vegans everywhere. Some think that wearing the fake version of these items perpetuates a desire for the real thing. Others believe offering faux alternatives allows more people to make the switch than otherwise would have. Both sides have a good point.
Callie and Nichole explore this topic, discussing Stella McCartney’s new fashion collection that now includes faux fur coats, something Ms. McCartney was firmly against in the past. We also talk briefly about the concept of sustainability and repurposing items from vintage/second-hand stores, and whether or not you are required to through out your leather boots that you bought ten years ago.
