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.

Unfortunately, the time is here. It is officially the spring semester, and you know what that means: lots and lots of studying. If you are in the same situation I am, then you are probably doing your 3rd semester of online/hybrid school. Not being at school or not attending classes in person definitely makes learning and studying a lot harder. Because I know this struggle all too well, I put together a list of study tips to hopefully help us all succeed a little more this semester.

I Have An Eating Disorder And I Refuse To Let It Kill Me

Even at my lowest, the number on the scale never seemed low enough... but was it ever worth the risk of losing my life?

Trigger warning: This article discusses topics that may be triggering for some readers.

I looked down at my thumb today. I know haven't been eating enough. I told everyone I would get all my vitamins and calories in. I totally wanted to eat more of the guacamole I bought the other day, but I counted what I had eaten and those numbers seemed a little too high. I decided I didn't need the extra helping, so I went to bed and the guacamole went bad.

When pursuing a degree that most deem 'useless' or a 'waste of time' there happens to be a lot of self-doubt and fear, especially with the pending doom of graduation around the corner. I remember when I was about to graduate from college with a Bachelor's in Acting, I was absolutely terrified.

I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.
