Fur in the Fashion World
Fur dominates the scene this fashion season, covering not just the models but major magazine pages and TV screens. These furs take shape with a modern twist. No longer a fur only worn to expensive dinners or high mass; it’s fur for the truly post-modern age: a style that combines elegance and verve. Modern designers use fur to create high-fashion in nearly every type of garment; they use fur not only in the traditional fur coat but to trim “ready to wear” garments, even pullover sweatshirts. Fur weaves its way into suits, dresses, sweaters, tank tops, vests, capes, skirts and pants. For a new look this summer, fall, or winter, fur is at the forefront of fashion.
