what is with fashion? One year fur is out, the next it is in again. Who decides on this stuff anyway? Another year for 'bad' fashion. (even other than the real fur - the fashion gets pretty bad).

I thought there were some models who refuse to wear fur, even signing a statement of some sort. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thinking.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":think:">

There are some yes. I think that those models just don't work with the designers that use real fur. Not sure about the contract thing.

I agree that fur is having one of its periodic upswings this winter season--in the form of trim, at least. Even in my little economically depressed area, I am seeing considerably more fur trim this winter season than I did last year.<br><br><br><br>
The most noticeable jump is among teenagers. When I was in high school, I may have seen one or two furs in the entire school, tops. Even in college the number of students wearing fur was still only a small fraction of the student body. Now when a big group of teens comes in, it is unusual <i>not</i> to see a strip of dead animal hanging from the collars/hoods of one or more members of the group.

That's because the fur industry, sensing that they're losing their older customers, is now targeting younger ones, especially kids in their teens and twenties. Sort of like "this is not your mother's (or grandmother's) fur coat" kind of hip advertising. And they're dyeing fur into all sorts of wild shades to make it look cool and hip, something you NEVER would have seen a generation or two ago, because the appeal a generation or two ago would have been to show off fur in its natural colors.

because the new "in" thing, is what is out, is actually in. vice versa. being trendy isnt cool, but doing the opposite of the trend actually is the trend.
