Recently, my mother gave me a full length fur coat she’s had since the seventies. I’m at a total loss as to what to do with it. Realistically, I can’t imagine a scenario where I would wear it. Re-styling is an option, but that could get expensive for a clothing item that doesn’t fit my lifestyle. With an increasing number of designers (Gucci is among the latest), retailers (Net-a-Porter) and even cities (San Francisco) going fur free, I think the days of wearing fur, both stylishly and consciously, are numbered.
Do I sell it? Is there an online donation site? Suggestions welcome, but please refrain from opinions on the ethics of fur in general.
