Stella McCartney, daughter of the famous Sir Paul McCartney of the Beatles, recently lashed out at the fashion industry for their use of furs.
A fashion designer herself, Stella finds herself angry at fellow designers like Jean-Paul Gaultier who continue to use real fur on their catwalks. Apparently many people believe that the fur trim on jackets is fake, when the truth is, a lot of it is real.
The statistics are quite shocking. Fur sales have hit 500 million dollars for the first time ever, an increase of over 30%.
