New York, New York — Holding a banner portraying a “cave person” fully clad in fur with the catchword “Evolve”, members of Friends of Animals (FoA) will launch a high profile campaign targeting Prada’s archaic and exploitative fur “fashions.” All four NYC Prada stores will be under severe criticism. Parsons School of Design and Hunter College students will join in the effort by way of street theatre.
Clad in furs, mimicking “Cave People”, they will link the misinformed and unfashionable fur wearers of today with our prehistoric ancestors, and encourage people to build a peaceful wardrobe.
Other activists will distribute Friends of Animals Fur Activist Kits in trendy bags stamped with the slogan “Fur: It’s Not My Bag”
