Model in Stunning Schiaparelli-Style ‘Sheep’s Head’ to Bleat for Wool-Free Wear at NYFW
Following the stir at Paris Fashion Week caused by Schiaparelli’s three-dimensional animal-head designs worn by Kylie Jenner and other models, a PETA model will strut her stuff at New York Fashion Week (NYFW) on Tuesday wearing a faux sheep’s head in a salute to and twist on the designer’s style—but sans wool, as 14 exposés by PETA entities have documented shearers on sheep farms worldwide beating, stomping on, and cutting open sheep as well as slitting their throats. The pop-up runway presentation will be outside Spring Studios, the center of NYFW.
“Schiaparelli’s ‘animal heads’ were creative but caused sheep to be thrown to the ground and cut, often to pieces, as their wool was stolen from them,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “With this cruelty-free spin, PETA is encouraging everyone to look to the future of fashion and choose fabulous vegan knits.”
Located at Spring Studios, at the intersection of St. Johns Lane and Beach Street, New York, Tuesday, February 14, 12:30 p.m.
