Todd Lynn featured some very beautiful furs in his Autumn Winter 2011 collection. The Canadian designer, who is based in London, has a very “open” relationship with the fur industry. He collaborates with Saga Furs for his collections, and is very clear about his reasons for using fur:
“I am very careful about where my products come from. I work with Saga fur – it comes from Finland, they have a vested interest in proper product and breeding, and the animals have to be treated properly. I’m not a heartless person, but for those of us who work in high-end fashion, there are certain things we need to use. Fur is something my clients want. You make the choice. We don’t do a lot of it – it’s just part of the collection, the way leather is.” -Todd Lynn
If only more designers would take this approach.
