My family has recovered from my comment,“now that I am an animal rights activist my grooming is going to slide”. This statement was not an indictment on the dress taste of AR activists but rather my intention to fully dedicate my time to animal rights work. So my husband saved me from myself by buying me some really cool anti-fur tops from Vaute Couture.
Spelled for Haute Couture with a V for Vegan, but said like VOTE —VAUTE is an independent fashion house run by Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart. Leanne gave up her modelling career to develop “cruelty-free fashion that’s way better than wearing animals ever could be”. Their clothes might be more expensive than our local Mister Price but, hey, they not made in China and make a fabulous gift. Tee shirts, as seen below, are part of their ware.
The IAFC operates worldwide, working to end the atrocities of the fur industry. For example, IAFC campaigned alongside animal rights organisations in Israel to ban fur in Israel. Jane argued, “this legislation will save millions of innocent animals from being slaughtered for a needless twisted fashion”.
