Fur companies are using the current financial difficulties to lure designers into using fur.

Fur companies are offering lucrative sponsorship deals and expensive trips to British designers in an attempt to break the taboo on fur, an investigation by The Times has found.

After a ban on fur farming in Britain and successful campaigns by anti-fur groups, designers have been reluctant to promote ranges in this country for fear of retaliation. Now it has emerged that the large companies, including Saga Furs and Kopenhagen Fur, both in Denmark, are providing expensive furs free to British designers, as well as entertaining designers and stylists at their Scandanavian headquarters.

Designers said that in the present financial climate, sponsorship from fur companies could make the difference between putting on a show or being able to hire the right model. One said: No one appreciates just how tough it is right now. If you were offered free fur which looks glamorous and expensive and you were assured it was ethically farmed then why wouldnt you go ahead and stick it in your show?
