lynxette Posted March 26, 2006 Share Posted March 26, 2006 Okay, I know this is getting to the end of the month and all, but I thought I would post a sort of factoid of the month so to say and get it in under the wire. It is my goal to post at least one of these per month in the hopes of stimulating possible discussion questions for this forum. Anyway, here it is: the first time fur was used in the fashion industry to make what most of us today think of as a fur coat, ie with the fur on the outside as the main part of the garment, was in Paris France in the year 1900. Madame Paquin, who was the first woman to achieve fame as a fashion designer, displayed a collection of clothing trimmed with fur, as well as fur coats with the fur on the outside as a fashion statement in and of itself. The rest as they say, is history. So all of us who love wearing furs owe her a great round of applause I think for getting the ball rolling.
