Episode Description

Fashion should have absolutely nothing to do with cruelty. Now, meet 3 women leading the charge to remove animal products from fashion shows, burlesque shows, showrooms and clothing stores by eliminating all feathers, leather, wool, silk, cashmere and - of course - fur. Monica Kay is a burlesque dancer and leader of Feather Phase Out, a campaign to replace real feathers with faux in burlesque and entertainment. Vikki Lenola is a model/activist who produces The Vegan Fashion Show in Canada. And, Lady Freethinker is the famous activist exposing the horrors of real fur with a shocking new investigation. They speak to UnchainedTV’s Jane Velez-Mitchell to show the world that real fashion is compassion.
