Wearing animal fur raises heated debates, yet fur jackets continuously crawl their way back into fashion.
Fur coats can be found in many second-hand shops. We all know recycling is good for the environment, and animals are not sacrificed twice for second-hand fur garments, so is it safe to say vintage fur is acceptable?
What are your thoughts? Would you wear vintage fur?
I can see the logic of saying that an animal didn't die for you to have it because it's vintage. However, wearing it at all perpetuates the notion that wearing fur is cool and indirectly feeds the demand for it. Personally the idea of wearing a dead animal's fur grosses me out a bit. I don't know why it bothers me more than leather, but it does. Especially the furs that have the animal's stuffed head and claws or tail still attached. Yuck!
My response is similar to Tash's. I have a fur that was my grandmothers so it's got some sentimental value. That said, I actually don't really like the look of fur so I haven't worn it anywhere, but I'll keep it for the rest of my life and pass it on to my children.
This is a good question. I personally don't like the idea of wearing an animal that was killed for the purpose of fashion. However, I have to admit, I wear leather shoes which is technically the same thing.
I do think, however, vintage fur, is a little outdated at the moment. But like the 80's fashion has returned I believe that vintage fur may just make the head lines down the track.
