Faux Fur Fashion Fling 

Hackles Lowered

Hackles Lowered
Fashion and beauty have always involved sleight of hand and smoke and mirrors. Not content to merely flirt with the dark side, though, they simply can't resist cutting deals with the devil, whether it's the abhorrent Draize test—spraying cosmetics into a rabbit's eyes—or the use of astrakhan fur ripped from aborted lamb fetuses, which was all the rage a few years back. If you support folks drawing an indisputable line on the matter, then this event, which benefits the Tennessee Animal Resource Center, Happy Tales Humane and Walden's Puddle, plants itself firmly on the cruelty-free side of the debate. $50 buys you wine, gourmet grub, a clean conscience and a chance to eye (and in one case, win a coat from) the Genuine Fake synthetic fur line. Tickets available at animalresourcectr.org.
Sat., Nov. 7, 3-6 p.m., 2009
