Tim Gunn’s Fashion Bible Sends Anti-Fur Message

The fashion guru is adamant about the absence of fur as a fashion staple in his new book.

As a top fashion guru and mentor to burgeoning designers on Project Runway, Tim Gunn knows a thing or two about being well dressed. In his third book, Tim Gunn’s Fashion Bible: The Fascinating History of Everything in Your Closet, Gunn was careful to encourage readers to leave one particular item off the hanger—fur. In his chapter “Coats and Jackets,” Gunn dutifully explains how meeting with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animal’s Vice President Dan Mathews during his time at Liz Claiborne Inc. changed his perceptions. “I became convinced that fur was unnecessary and even immoral,” says Gunn, who subsequently implemented changes to make Claiborne fur-free, and further notes that “fur belongs in the dustbin of history.” Thanks to Gunn, who was PETA’s 2009 Man of the Year, Project Runway is also fur-free.
