Event Description

Join Joshua Katcher, author of Fashion Animals, on January 16th from 6-8pm at Shakespeare & Co (1632 Walnut St, Philadelphia, PA 19103). Fashion Animals was given the 2019 Essential Reading Award from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. This fascinating title takes readers on a trip back through history to observe the many cruel ways in which animals have been used in fashion. The book, full of gorgeous archival fashion images, also helps us understand why we are so drawn to animal materials and representation in fashion, and what can be done to bring about change, including emerging innovations that could replace the use of animals altogether in our clothing.
