Skaist Taylor’s founders, Pamela Skaist-Levy and Gela Nash-Taylor, have made millions profiting off compassionate consumers that shopped with the duo's previous company, Juicy Couture, which has been fur-free since 2008. As one of Juicy's formerly enthusiastic supporters, I personally feel betrayed and heartbroken to see that not only are these two women wearing and promoting real fur themselves, but they are also selling it in their upcoming fall line!
Skaist Taylor’s selection on the Neiman Marcus website currently includes fur and shearling from all over the world, most notably China- home of the world’s worst animal cruelty, especially as it pertains to its fur-bearing victims.
It’s bad enough to see fur pelts from animals that have been skinned alive, drowned, anally electrocuted, gassed, or put to any horrific death for the sake of “fashion,” but it’s even worse seeing it come from two fashionistas that benefitted immensely from the support of the animal rights community.
Please encourage these two fashion leaders to educate themselves about the atrocities of the fur industry and remove all fur items from their line. Let them know that not only will you not be supporting their new business, but you will also tell anyone and everyone to boycott Skaist Taylor until they join other fashion leaders like Stella McCartney, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Charlotte Ronson, Kate Spade, and many others to officially pledge their fur-free stance.
With the abundance of faux fur alternatives available today, there is absolutely no excuse to murder fur-bearing animals for fashion.
