What do I think, you ask? Well, while browsing through the website's slideshows of snake skin and reading the article, I was simply shocked. Designers whom I love were calling the animal's skin sensual and feminine, but all I could think about was how a snake had died to make this dress. Now, this may be an old concern, something that is already a big part of the fashion industry, but I just can't believe that a beautiful dress was actually what was once a beautiful snake.
Many designers have used snake skin in their Spring 2011 collections, but Stella McCartney is the only one who knows how to use it the right way. She creates gorgeous snake skin dresses and tops, but with one difference- she uses the print of snake skin, and they end up looking just as gorgeous as the actual skin of the poor snake. What are your views on this subject? Do you, like me, believe this aspect if the industry should change?
