Fab Flash: Nicole Miller and Stella McCartney, Fur or Anti?

In response to the NYC Animal Rights' plans to stage a rally outside her Spring 2008 show on September 5, Nicole Miller has announced that she plans to be fur-free starting in the Spring. She says that her current use of fur is "miniscule," about 0.008% of the total items sold under the Nicole Miller label, but after NYC Animal Rights started a smear campaign on their website, with one section dubbed "Nicole Miller Animal Killer," she reconsidered.

Meanwhile, another lady in fashion who is well-known for her anti-fur tendencies, Stella McCartney, is feeling a bit of heat. The designer is finding herself in a sticky situation, as animal welfare campaigners are decrying Adidas, who Stella designs a collection for, for their use of kangaroo leather. Stella herself has made no comment on the matter thus far.

UPDATE: Stella has just issued a statement, vowing that her Adidas by Stella McCartney collection is "100% cruelty-free" and that no leather or fur are used.

I agree with you 'cgmaetc,' they could have probably broaden the scope of their service.

I rather wear fur than go naked. I hate frakking PETA. They only care for cute animals... I don't hear them crying for spiders and sharks. Why come...? When PETA throws paint on you, it's an act of free speech. When you turn around and kick their asses, it's assault.

PETA f*cks me off with their guerilla tactics. They'd probably get a tonnage more supporters if they didn't come as a little nutty and scary all the time.

I agree with you Katerkins!! They should just tell people fur makes you look fat. I guarantee people would stop wearing it.

I don't own fur and probably never will. But PETA annoys me, and if I were famous, I'd wear it all the time, just to spite them.
