One of our favourite things to do at PETA is engage with students. To inspire an ethical trend among the future leaders of fashion, PETA’s resident style maven and associate manager of celebrity and media projects, Benazir Suraiya, let students at the International Institute of Fashion Design (INIFD) – Guwahati in on why compassion is always in fashion.
Students learned that maiming, abusing, and killing animals for clothing, shoes, and accessories isn’t chic but barbaric, with a screening of PETA’s video about what happens to animals used for leather, fur, exotic skins, and wool.
Cruelty-free fashion is more fun. Just look at the fabulous vegan leather , faux fur, and banana silk products that INIFD students had the chance to ogle during Benazir’s visit.
Benazir spoke to students about sparing animals pain and death by choosing to work with cruelty-free fabrics instead of fur, exotic skins, silk, leather, and wool. After all, many retailers and celebrities already shun cruel animal-derived fabrics, and the list of fashion companies creating vegan products grows by the day .
