If you heard about a group of tigers taking over
the runway at the Styles and Trends 2012 fashion show held by Jagannath
Institute of Management Sciences' Department of Design, now you know – it's
true. Models were catlike on the catwalk, strutting their stuff in a design
collection with the theme "Save Our Tigers."
The collection's designers, students at the
institute, partnered with PETA Youth to create an unforgettable show that made
attendees aware that zoos take tigers out of their natural environments
and imprison them in tiny, barren enclosures. Some models also rocked the
runway in petaDishoom (now PETA Youth) shirts.
The designers didn't just make a statement about
protecting tigers by boycotting zoos – every imaginative piece was designed
without any fur, leather or exotic-animal skins. And considering all the PETA Youth merchandise
and literature that PETA Youth handed out, there's a good chance that more
students will soon be discovering how inspiring living cruelty-free can be.
