Fendi and the Seoul government have been unable to come to an agreement over the use of fur in an upcoming fashion show in the South Korean capital which may lead to the show’s cancellation.

When It Comes to Fur, Fendis Got No Seoul

The show, scheduled for June 2nd, was meant to “promote Seoul to  the world,” according to Joseph Sung, a Seoul government official, but local civic groups won’t let the fur fly. Says Sung, “The [animal lovers] are against it.”

A house spokeswoman insists, however, that fur is “part of the DNA of Fendi” and they are staunch in their position. Understandably so, as all the time and energy Karl Lagerfeld put into personally strangling those baby animals — he’s very hands on when it comes to design — would be for naught. [WWD]
