Chanel Just Renounced All Animal Skins, We Hope ALL Follow
Start writing a post

Thanks to Chanel's announcement that they're kicking fur and exotic skins — including crocodile, lizard, and snakeskin — we have another high fashion brand taking a stand against animal cruelty.

"At Chanel, we are continually reviewing our supply chains to ensure they meet our expectations of integrity and traceability. In this context, it is our experience that it is becoming increasingly difficult to source exotic skins which match our ethical standards. An opportunity to create a new generation of high-end products."" - A spokeswoman for Chanel

Chanel isn't the only luxury brand to ban barbaric fashion.

"Real fur is extraordinarily old-fashioned. It's not relevant, it's not sexy, it's not fashionable, and it's not cool." - Stella McCartney

Wearing animals is not luxury, it's just really disgusting. It's so unhealthy to be skinning crocodiles to turn into products for us to wear. Can you imagine wearing someone else's skin and calling it to fashion?

What a health hazard.

Amidst this worldwide pandemic, it cannot be safe for the workers to still have to tend these animal skinning factories.

The pandemic is caused by the zoonotic disease, coronavirus, which can transfer from animal to human and vice versa.

Maybe fashion schools need a class in health hazards and ethics. Isn't high-end fashion all about class? Let's not fail the fashion industry, it's time for a serious lesson.

Here's a full list of truly high fashion brands~

It's amazing to see the real ones making fashion what it is, art. These luxury brands respect their employees by not subjecting them to a health compromising work environment.

Louis Vuitton needs to cut it out

PETA's video exposé reveals the suffering and agonizing deaths of crocodiles in Vietnam to make "luxury" leather bags for Louis Vuitton and other brands —help stop this! There's a petition at the end for you to sign. Make sure you sign the petition.

Hermes has an entire alligator and crocodile factory

Thousands of crocodiles and alligators are crammed into concrete pits and filthy pools—all killed for their skin before even reaching adulthood. Some of their infamous Birkin and Kelly bags are wrapped in crocodile skin and sold at the same price as real estate.

Dior

Due to legality issues, Dior does not advertise their exotic skins. Don't worry, there's plenty of evidence thanks to influencers. Unlike Hermès, Dior also does not advertise its exotic skin factory's location. I think Dior needs to call their lawyers.

Here's how you can take action through Peta, sign their petition

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
