Thank you *Shenkar* College of Design and art, for being respective to the Israeli public outcry against Fur and Leather and cancelling your course on its use.
At a time that huge fashion names like Hugo Boss, Ralph Lauren and now the elegant Fashion House of Giorgio Armani have joined the many other Fur Free fashion houses, it proves that the Fashion Industry is realizing that being beautiful is more than skin deep and the barbaric cruelty of Fur has no place in Fashion.
In a world becoming increasingly ethically aware that Fur = BLOOD FASHION and that it is on the out, hence logically any college of design that trains the designer of tomorrow need be Fur Free.
Huge Thanks too to the "Anti-Fur Underground" (of the IAFC), "Anonymous" and "Let Animals Live",to all the ethical staff and students of Shenkar that spoke up for the animals and the Israeli public for all their efforts once they found out about this inappropriate course, like for example flooding Facebook and other social medias. Animal Rights organizations planned a demonstration demanding to cancel the course.
*The Shenkar Fashion Design Department was rated among the top-most leading and influential schools in the fashion world. it was ranked 5th by the prestigious international " Business of Fashion Magazine", in the category of schools that most influenced the fashion world, and ranked 11th among all the fashion design institutions.
