The Fur Trade - Celebrity Fur Files      


Celebrity Fur files


Fur in fashion was once thought to be luxurious, and a symbol of wealth - now, many recognise it as being grossly inhumane, to the extent that many Australian retailers are changing their policies, going faux, and promoting a fur free society.

Catch up on the latest celebrity news and gossip here - who's wearing fur, and who supports our efforts to bring this cruel trade to an end.
