Petition text

A well-known Paris-based fashion editor has been seen wearing a vintage coat made of gorilla fur. It happened in Paris, before a men’s winter-fall 2014-2015 fashion collection presentation. The news was broken by the Associated Press from the French capital.

Ms Pernet – a fashion film director and former French Vogue columnist – says she received the coat from a friend who is a vegetarian. She defended herself by saying the following: “Perhaps I should feel uncomfortable wearing this pelt, but I don’t, because I know the gorilla’s been dead for 80 years”.

As it turns out, the garment is one of the most important items in her wardrobe. Several pictures from her Instagram account reveal she has been wearing the pelt at several fashion presentations this winter.

We are appalled that Ms. Pernet has opted to wear this gorilla pelt! This is an unbereable promotion of all the cruelty the fashion industry stands for! Tell Ms Pernet to ditch the gorilla fur as soon as possible!
