Fur Is Back On The Fashion Agenda


Alexander McQueen’s wildy romantic fairytale show in Paris may have had fashion fans under a spell but it’s bound to rile animal lovers.

From hand-cut fur pom poms to hooded fur gilets, the fashion house’s AW14 was almost entirely made up of the controversial material.

Designer Sarah Burton, who came to the attention of the wider public after designing the former Kate Middleton’s wedding dress, sent her models down the runway as fairy-tale heroines roaming a make-believe forest with their fur-embellished gowns trailing behind them. According to her show notes, the inspiration was floral and nocturnal fauna, Beauty and the Beast, and wild romance. Burton made it clear that fur is back on the fashion agenda for AW14.
