This gorgeous fur coat is simply a stunner! The shoulder cut and the sheen of the fur is just beautiful.
Sadly, we feel it has too many issues to be make it to our wearable range! However, we are all about saving our fashion history, reusing and recycling so here are a few ideas we thought might work to keep this beauty from landfill:
If you are a furrier or, know a seamstress who can work with fur ... fix this poor beauty! The fur and cut are just divine!
Do you actually care if there are a couple of bits not quite right? If not, wear it! Its gorgeous.
Are you from a film or theatre company and prefer to use something that has 'a few issues' for your designs rather than the perfect examples?
Do you know a teddy bear maker who would love this?
At least 50 years young this is a beauty we thought Dear Liza might be able to help!
