Ask Michael Kors why he uses fur!

Please take a moment of your time to submit questions for designer Michael Kors, asking him why he continues to use fur in his designs when he knows that fur requires animals to be tortured and barbarically killed. If this topic gets a lot of hits, the general ethical issues of fur will be in Time Magazine's "100 Questions for Michael Kors."

Here are some sample posts (feel free to copy/paste if you are busy):

“How can you call yourself an original designer when you steal fashion ideas from animals by using their fur?

“Why won’t you stop using fur, even when so many hyper-fashionable people, like Stella McCartney, Vivienne Westwood, Natalie Portman, and Tim Gunn have come out against it?”

“You recently dropped raccoon dog fur from your line—why not all fur? Why should raccoon dogs be spared, and not other sentient animals?”

“Why you such a bitch to animals boy?” haha


  1. Good idea! There are already a lot of posted questions about fur and leather, and getting this to be one of the items printed in Time definitely seems reasonable.

  2. Nice actionable item. Thanks for the post!

  3. I generally dislike Michael Kors' "fashion" but when I read he uses fur in his designs, I was especially disgusted.

    He's a man who is into human rights as a gay man who married his partner, but yet where is the compassion for other living beings on the planet?

    Really, dude, put yourself in the place of the animals. How would you like to be skinned?
