French fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier goes fur-free.

“Fur is more sensual than fake fur, but you can find other ways of staying warm.” – Jean Paul Gaultier.

After Gaultier’s announcement, PETA the animal campaign group said that “corks are popping” at its headquarters, but the french fur-makers expressed disappointment at his announcement saying that his decision was “based on false information peddled as much by animal activists as by the fake fur industry”.

“To allow him to make a clear choice, we would be happy to show Jean Paul Gaultier that the breeding and slaughtering techniques respect all European and French regulations on the treatment of animals.” – French fur-makers

Jean-Paul Gaultier is a French haute couture and prêt-à-porter fashion designer. He was the creative director of Hermès from 2003 to 2010. He co-presented the television series Eurotrash with Antoine de Caunes. His first individual collection was released in 1976, and his characteristic irreverent style dating from 1981 has led to his being known as the enfant terrible of French fashion. Many of Gaultier’s subsequent collections have been based on street wear, focusing on popular culture, whereas others, particularly his haute couture collections, are very formal, yet at the same time unusual and playful. Gaultier caused shock by using unconventional models for his exhibitions, like older men and full-figured women, pierced and heavily tattooed models, and by playing with traditional gender roles in the shows. This earned him both criticism and enormous popularity.  He also designed some furniture for the French furniture brand Roche Bobois.
