People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals bared almost all outside Toronto's LG Fashion Week on Tuesday to protest the use of animal skins in fashion.
Two women posed topless in their skivvies and high heels behind a banner that said "Bare Skin, Don't Wear Skin" while fellow activists held signs reading "Animals are Not Ours to Wear" and "Trapped By Greed."
The group's presence was part of their ongoing "I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur" campaign.
Cars slowed to a crawl along Strachan Avenue just outside the gates, many honking at the protesters. Construction workers milling around pulled out camera phones to capture the action.
A PETA video notes that several designers and retailers make their creations without using real fur, leather or animal-derived textiles. The organization notes that Suzy Shier, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, and Stella McCartney refuse to use fur in their creations.
