Our friends at the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) are hosting a fur-free fashion show! Paul Wesley and Torrey DeVitto, stars of the hit series “The Vampire Diaries,” will serve as hosts of The Humane Society of the United States’ H-Couture 2012 on Saturday, September 22, 2012 in Los Angeles.
“We are excited to be hosting the first ever H-Couture event on behalf of The Humane Society of the United States because we both support events that promote compassion for animals,” says Wesley.
DeVitto adds, “Fashion should be fun, and I don’t see how wearing animal fur can be anything other than cruel and unnecessary. This event will show that anyone can be fashion-conscious without animals having to pay the price.”
Tickets start at $200 and proceeds from H-Couture 2012 will benefit The HSUS’s Fur-Free Campaign and the Hollywood Outreach program. The HSUS’s Fur-Free Campaign promotes compassion in fashion, working with designers, retailers and fashion students to encourage the use of the many warm, chic alternatives to animal fur.
