Chanel Just Renounced All Animal Furs And Exotic Skins, And We Hope ALL Luxury Brands Follow

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.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
