These days being just vegetarian doesn't cut it, you have to be vegan if you want to be guilt free (if you know how eggs and milk are farmed you would understand why eating those things can be just as bad as eating meat). But even then there are the all the animal products used in non food items like textiles and plastic materials. That isn't to say one shouldn't bother, it's just a difficult issue.

Besides that, there is something romantically morbid about using exotic animal skins/feathers/ and furs to clothe yourself. Obviously it is gross and awful but where would the world be without ostrich feathers, pressed leather, and clean crisp fox furs? With that gothic allure and supernatural undertone who else could design for such an esteemed fur house other than Rick Owens?
