Animal rights activist group, PETA, is pretty aggressive when it comes to saving animals. So I don’t know how they would feel about this dangling fringe Porcupine quill necklace from Acid Zip. Made of delicate Porcupine quills strung together on a vintage brass chain, the quills double as protection against PETA. Wink wink.
Move over naked models bearing all in the name of saving fur. PETA’s latest anti-meat protest cleverly uses visually provocative human meat packs to prove its point. The shockvertising stunt held at Times Square featured nude PETA volunteers covered in fake blood, lying in oversized plastic-wrapped meat trays to raise awareness for the Meat is Murder campaign.
It’s quite disturbing at the New Generation at Australian Fashion Week show as the designer comes out to take their final bow and more often than not looks younger than the fresh-faced models. The presentation of the new kids on the block is always packed to the rafters with fashionistas on the pilgrimage to find ‘the one to watch’. Pretty soon they could be mega-brands, and everyone wants the kudos of saying: ‘I remember being at their first show’. We’re still talking about Ksubi’s (then Tsubi) infamous debut onto the scene in which live rats were released onto the catwalk (yes, PETA was not impressed).
