Fur coats are still worn by many celebrities, sports figures, high fashion models, those who live in very cold climates as well as the average citizen who is going out for a special evening. However, they make incite the wrath of PETA or various animals’ rights advocates. You may have seen a picture of a person wearing a real fur coat with red paint thrown on it. That is due to the animal rights groups.
This type of advocacy has raised the public conscience about wearing real fur. That is when the faux fur industry really took off and produced very stylish high fashion designs rather than less expense knock offs. Today you will see faux furs on run way models, designers embracing the fake fur fabric and fashion magazines reporting the imitation furs as the latest rage.
Luxurious acrylic furs can be found in a variety of colors and styles. These coats can be purchased at different price ranges depending on the type of fabric used, the types of lining, the length, cut such as vest, mid half, or full length and label. Designers have a tendency to charge more for their styles than Macy’s off the rack faux fur.
Faux fur coats are just as fashionable as real fur coats and can deliver similar effects when worn with a variety of outfits. Some of these coats are quite luxurious and desirable. You can bet if People Magazine has a picture Goldie Hawn while in Aspen wearing a synthetic fur that coat will fly off the rack the next week.
Some women are interested in long faux fur coats and desire these fashionable pieces to stay warm in places where climates reach very cold levels. New York is an excellent city to see the mix of real and fake fur being worn during the long winter months. Some people who can not afford real fur and wear fake fur often claim that they do so because of their love of animals. It may be more of a pocket book issue than an animal lover’s issue. And so it goes in New York.
Fur has been used in children’s clothes, hats, stuffed animals, blankets, rugs, clothing, fabric, shoes, slippers, and even some pop art and wherever the real thing can be used so can the synthetic version. It is interesting to note that most of the synthetic fabrics are made in China and India.
Faux fur coats are plainly just as fashionable as “the real deal” in the fur coat clothing line. There is little to no difference in beauty between the two and either coat can be purchased at similar prices to get comparable fashionable effects.
