Are we all heartless in the fashion industry? According to Stella McCartney we are. The notoriously outspoken designer and devout vegetarian believes that the fashion industry’s continuous use of fur and leather is heartless. In an interview with the Guardian she says, “People in fashion just don’t want to hear the messages. I find it astounding, because fashion is supposed to be about change – I mean, we’re supposed to be at the cutting edge, I can only think people don’t care as much as people in other industries. So, yes, I think people in fashion are pretty heartless.”

Stella also believes that by cutting down our meat consumption we can radically reduce green house gases, this has led her to set up the ‘Meat Free Mondays’ campaign with her dad and sister Mary. 

Rather than using leather in her designs Stella has pioneered alternative fabrics for accessories, she’s also gone as far as urging super-shopper Lindsay Lohan to stop wearing leather. This is definitely a very passionate woman, who makes a strong argument but what do you think readers? Should we say no to fur and leather?
