Mink Fur vs PETA Organization

Thursday, 09 June 2011

Mink Fur vs PETAA mink fur coat has been the symbol of lavish luxury for ever times among women in every society. The fur so subtle by touch looks majestic with every ensemble and dresses or jackets trimmed with mink fur look special. This animal beauty on humans is strictly fought against by the PETA organization. The strong confrontation is noticed for many recent years, with the front row of activist in the close interlace who protect animals and designers who still launch fashion items made from mink fur or any other fur and as the third party, there are people who side with this or that camp. And the mink fur has its special place in this war.

The PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) initiated the war against wearing fur in 1980. They marched with banners with dramatic and loud slogans to appeal to attention of the society. The PETA attract celebrities with the similar perception to PETA policy. Yet, the ordinary people get affected with such positive movement for some time. Nevertheless, PETA contributed to this movement and there are a lot of people who do not consider a mink fur coat as the must-have symbol of luxury life.

Somehow in 1993 the PETA achieved some goals when the Brook Brothers Company discontinued production of winter headphones made from mink fur. The same year the Early Winters Company discontinued production of fur items, following the fashion colleague, most likely.

The ex-spouses Kim Bassigner and Alek Bolduin addressed to the Government of America in 1995 backed by the social support with the request to take measures regards to the ink fur export to other countries. In 2006 Mariah Carey, a famous singer, took her two luxury fir coats to PETA pretentiously presented to her by her admirers.

Since then and up to this day the organisation commits to attract celebrities to participate in activities with the piercing appealing mottos. In 1991 the posters first appeared with the most famous words of protest, which tell «I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur». In 2008 the program was initiated based on the words rhyming each others. The words addressed to the consumer to leave an animal with its fur and decorate themselves with something else, and the slogan sounded as «Ink, not mink».

However, not all celebrities are so conscious. Most of them cannot resist the temptation to appear on the red carpet wearing a short-haired furry vest, tippet or a coat.

Show-biz sphere still know celebrities who have never concealed their love and strive for the fur, including Jennifer Lopez, Eva Longoria, Rihanna, Lindsey Lohan, Olsen sisters and many others. Elizabeth Hurley and Naomi Campbell come as the real stimulus for the PETA. Elizabeth Hurley was featured in the ad campaign on Blackglama production of black mink fur coats, while the situation with Naomi was too ambiguous. Naomi Campbell who participated in PETA activities for over fifteen years advertise today the most expensive fur items.

Such celebrities who confront to such a solid organisation are regularly made fun of making parody for them and annually the list of the worst styled stars and celebrities is published. And the first ranks go to those who still love fur items. So, the first place in 2010 goes to Catherine Zeta-Jones. She has been noticed by sharp-sighted PETA representatives for her black mink fur coat which is called «old-womanish and tasteless».

The love for fur items is from time to times fed by the fashion designers who regularly launch new fur clothes and accessories to become trends. The Derek Lam show for the season Fall-Winter 2010-2011 presents fur tippets, whereas Jean-Paul Gaultier preferred coats trimmed with fur. The couturiers of today cannot help playing with the fur and cannot neglect its high lavish status, whatever the PETA says.

However, several fashion designers have decided to stop using fur in their collections as Stella McCartney who supports PETA programs for many years. On the whole the fashion industry launched fur items as must-have things from season to season and most people cannot resist from acquiring them. Confrontation goes on while the tendency is a little bit constrained.

Fur is preferred for ever times while PETA members pour mink fur items with the red paint to remind of the source of this fur appearance.
