Fashion to Die For

Necks cut open and spines severed alive, just so they can be made into $40,000 Birkin handbags and watch straps!

The shocking and disgusting treatment of animals by major labels and brands is beyond unacceptable in our modern connected economy. Social media has brought attention to the lack of compassion that many companies have for animal rights. So why is it, that when most people around the world believe that it is unacceptable to treat animals like this, do brands continue their barbaric practices?

Maybe it’s because people keep consuming these products.

Albert Einstein once said “The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil but by those who watch them without doing anything.”

The first step towards helping is to be educated on what is actually happening (follow this link to see the shocking imagery for your self WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT – Cruel Reality Behind Burkin Crocodile Hand Bags )

The next step is to help spread awareness. Here at the Huxley School of Makeup we gave our students the task of helping to spread awareness using the art of makeup and body paint. We are strongly against the senseless torture of animals and we’re so proud of our students for getting on board with this important awareness project!

Here are some of our favorite shots from the night. We believe the images speak for themselves but ultimately the choice is yours. Be a compassionate consumer…
