Omiru Poll Results: Fur is OUT!

Omiru Poll Result: Fur is Out!

Fur is OUTWe asked: Is Fur In or Out?

You said: Without a doubt, fur is OUT.  The breakdown?  A full 73% are anti-Fur, 6% believe fur is on the way out.  Only 21% believe that wearing Fur is In.

Omiru’s take: Here at Omiru, we’re pro-Animal, and we think that fur is best worn by the animal it’s grown on–so we’ll skip the "How to Wear Fur" style tips.  In fact, we promoted cruelty-free products in our latest Friday Fashion Hotlist.   However, we also believe that everyone’s entitled to their own opinion, so we’re not passing judgment on the pro-Fur 21%.  (We still love you too.)  It’s interesting to see the In-Out breakdown for this trend, especially since one of the big Fall 2006 trends (if you believe the runways) is Fur.  Makes us wonder what’s turning public opinion against wearing Fur.  Is it PETA?  Or is it something else?  We welcome your ideas, as always, in the comments.

Next Question: Boots are always huge for fall, but do you still love Cowboy boots?  Sure, they got a lot of play last year–but would you still wear them this year?  Tell us, what do you think about cowboy boots?  Are they In, or are they Out?  Cast your vote on

    maybe it’s out for the same reason that people are starting to experiment with soy products and other environment friendly things

    Good point, Brianna. Environmental issues, animal issues, and others have been more prominent as of late. I think it’s a very positive thing that people are paying attention!

    Fur will always be in. It’s just a matter of how it’s worn – a little fur on cuffs and collars is very chic but if you live in Southern California/Miami and you are wearing fur in J.Lo proportions, then one must question one’s style.

    I find a gross majority of people extremely ignorant about fur. The techniques that professional furriers use on their animals is in NO way comparable w/ those of a third world fur farm. To lump them into the same category is an insult to those who have generations worth of experience with raising animals for fur.

    It’s great people are taking note of environmental issues but there are ways to conserve with what we have. How many people are aware of the fact that bio-diesel releases noxious gases that expand the hole in the ozone? How about the acres of forests that must be cut down to make space for soybean crop? Most people are so disengaged with where their clothes and food from that these questions are never posited. It’s not enough to have a “green” alternative but to also question what the pros/cons are of that alternative – just b/c it’s green doesn’t mean it’s not without it’s negative consequences.
