I like number 7, but what do I know about fashion

This from the Humane Society of the US.:

For a third year, staff from The HSUS traveled to Art Institutes
schools around the country to talk to fashion students about the
problems associated with animal fur, including cruelty and false
labeling. The students were shown four runway designs from fall 2007
that used animal fur and instructed to reinterpret and improve them
without the cruelty.

Check out the finalists below and choose your favorite!

  1. Click on the photos below to see larger pictures of the designs, then select the best and click "Vote." 

  2. Tell your friends to vote, too—cut and paste this link into an email: www.humanesociety.org/cvcvote07.
    The system will allow you to vote more than once, but any votes after
    the first one will be discarded, so send it to as many people as you
    know.

And the nominees are (drum roll):

 

No. 8 is the best! (Carrissa Raddatz, The Illinois Institute of Art–Chicago) No. 5 is the best!(Wei-Jung Ting, The Art Institute of New York City) No. 3 is the best! (Glenn M. Glass, The Illinois Institute of Art–Chicago)  No. 4 is the best! (Ashley Sharp, The Art Institute of Seattle)

  2. I remember this campaign last year and am so thankful for HSUS, for many things. thanks for posting about it, lw! I like no. 8 too–very 1920s, flapperish styling.

  3. Yikes – my typos! I meant No. 10, which reminds me of something Audrey Hepburn might have worn in one of her 60s movies… (Plus I have a thing for black and white.)
