It’s a real fur or faux fur, the attraction is controversial. 

I am always open to receive criticism and advice from the “general public” I know a genuine hearted constructive criticism when I see one, same time I do not welcome any kind of hate and targeted criticism, most especially when it comes from people who cannot even get their act together. (roll eyes)

Sophia, why are you wearing fur? don’t you know it is wrong ? these are the different question I was asked walking down the street of London because of a fake fur coat. One of them went overboard with fur criticism.

Fur or fake fur will forever attract controversy in the fashion industry, even though fake fur is not a real animal fur. It’s a synthetic fibre that are produced differently. Winter is more like the golden season of wearing fur, the ongoing debate as to whether wearing fur is ecologically sustainable for our society. As for the ethical side issue, there is still a general fuzzy attitude to wearing fur. Some people still don’t like the idea of looking like Cruella de Vil, with raising eyebrows such as is that real fur or fake fur.

Fashion is one of the fur industry’s greatest recent successes. The likes of Dolce & Gabbana, Alexander McQueen, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Fendi and Tom Ford are all including fur in their yearly collections.

In one of Karl Lagerfeld interview, there’s a fundamental question in all the criticism of wearing fur. “The problem with fur…For me, as long as people eat meat and wear leather, I don’t get the message.”

What are your thoughts on the rights and wrongs of this controversial fashion?

Do you think wearing fur break an unpardonable taboo or simply exercising your choice to dress as you like ?

I am trying hard to understand why animal rights group don’t make this much fuss over the use of leather. Doesn’t that come from animals too?
