It was all happening in Vienna last night as its fifth annual Vienna Fashion Night event took place. Causing a particular stir was this year’s special guest, former Baywatch actress Pamela Anderson, who follows in the footsteps of Poppy Delevingne who held the honour last year.
Those in Vienna on river cruises will have found it difficult to ignore the buzz in the atmosphere in the Austrian capital as fashionistas gathered for the most important event in the Viennese fashion calendar.
‘Strongest animal laws in Europe’
The animal-rights activist and actress tweeted of her main intent for the role, to persuade more designers to give up using fur in their designs. The actress, who’s Twitter profile picture takes the form of the word ‘fur’ in a no symbol, tweeted ahead of her arrival to say that she was looking forward to Vienna Fashion Night and hoped to continue ‘spreading the word’ on animal rights in fashion. Instead of ‘making a scene’ Anderson hoped to dissuade the designers from using fur in future designs by writing a letter.
Austria has among the strongest animal laws in Europe, it's nice to be here again - at fashion week - still spreading the word.— Pamela Anderson (@pamfoundation) June 18, 2015
