Oslo Fashion Week 2011 to Ban Fur

Norway is making history by banning fur from its Oslo Fashion Week. (The first ever country to take such a stand.)

More than 200 fashion leaders in Norway are rallying behind the cause. Save the critters!

Oslo Fashion Week in Norway will look a little different this February. Men and women will be unashamedly fur-less.

Forest creatures and animal lovers can thank a group called Mote Mot Pels (Fashion Against Fur) for the pelt prohibition. The fur-loving group won the support of fashion giants like Norwegian Elle, Norwegian Cosmopolitan and designers Leila Hafzi and Thomas Ryen to cap their victory.
