and of course there is always American Apparel, made in the USA by unionized workers.

beantownkids can buy it at the garment district (kendall square stop on the red line). i'm sure they also have a website.

i know from experience that their shirst are the most god-awful comfortable things on the planet. they're what i consider pricey for a tshirt (i'm cheap) at about 25 bucks ea. but its definatly worth it. i know that a number of bands on major record labels are using american apparel shirts for their band t-shirts while on tour. very cool.

he just might be my favorite designer... Jul. 17th, 2004 @ 08:18 pm

as a style network junkie, i once caught an episode of "behind the velvet ropes" (pompous sounding woman with grey hair...lauren ezersky?) where marc bouwer was interviewed. i distinctly remember him stating that designers of modern day have no excuse to use fur or leather, for there are synthetics that are of equal, if not better performance.

as it says on his website, he is PETA endorsed!

glad to see you Jul. 17th, 2004 @ 05:08 pm
thanks to all who have already joined; spread the word.

a little bit about me:
my name is emily, i'm 18, and i'm a sophmore at emerson college. i am a vegetarian- not vegan until they make better tasting vegan cheese. i, personally, do not own any leather or fur, and also am on the lookout to never purchase clothing that was manufactured in sweatshops. i'm a designer clothes/couture fiend (though its a surface obsession, not a purchase obsession), and have grown to love designers that choose to use fake fur and leather instead of the real deal (marc jacobs <3). i'm glad to see that there is already people interested in being intelligent and caring consumers. there is a way to keep your morals in a capitolist world.

thanks again, and keep posting!

This may sound kind of weird, but I was watching Howard Stern one night, and Pamela Anderson was on. She was talking about the clothing line she was designing, as well as shoe line, and I believe accessories line. As you may or may not know she has been vegan for many years as well as a PETA spokesperson. Her line will be completely man made/animal free which means all of her shoes will have man made materials, not leather, and so on.

I have yet to see any of her designs, I haven't really looked too hard, but I am interested.

I was wondering what everyone here thought of her work if you have seen any of it. And if you think more designers should take a hint from the lovely miss Pamela.

Also a brief introduction from myself...

My name is Andrea, I am in school for fashion design, I am 19 soon to be twenteen (22 days), I adore Pamela Anderson for her beliefs on animal rights and taking a stand on the issue, I am not vegetarian/vegan because I am living under my mothers roof at the moment and she makes me eat chicken to keep me healthy (which is probably a good thing) and I love milk!, I do own two furs and one suede with fur trim that were handed down to me from older generations of family, I will never purchase clothing from brands using sweatshops at least from those I know about.

good morning! Jul. 17th, 2004 @ 11:59 am
prompted by another person's creation of a community for those who are pro-fur, i created this community, for those of us who like to stay politically correct, even in our fashion choices. feel free to add what you'd like, i'm new at this community moderating thing, so bear with me!
