Beautiful country

Designers kick off Toronto Fashion Week with fur.

Mainella said he believes the key is for everyone to be informed. He said the livelihood of trappers making a living from the fur industry is no different than the farming or livestock industry being supported through the purchase of food or leather goods.

“I’m not here to be the spokesperson for fur. I’m here to design a collection that I hope people really love and would like to wear,” he said.

“For those who protest or speak to animal rights, I mean that’s the beauty of this country — you should be able to voice your opinion,” he added.

“But at the same time, those who care to participate in purchasing things like fur and buying meat in their groceries or poultry or those who enjoy leather products, they should be able to freely do the same.”
