Angela Simmons's Foofi Faux Fur Line Launch 


Angela Simmons, daughter of Joseph Simmons (better known as Reverend Run of RUN-D.M.C.) and niece of Russell —  Models pose at the launch event for FOOFI By Angela Simmons at  the Manhattan’s Gansevoort Hotel.


 Simmons, a vegetarian and PETA supporter, said she stopped wearing fur years ago after researching the way animals were treated .  

Love the look of  fur, but worry about being cruelty-free? Go faux!


 The 23-piece collection includes outerwear, vests, hoodies and accessories made from acrylic and polyester faux fur blends sourced in China. Done in a colorful palette and finished with a floral-printed lining, the pieces range from $150 to $495 and will be sold primarily online.  It’s for the New York City girl on-the-go; chic but playful and fun,” she said. “Something that can bring you to work, play, evening

“Modern fake fur looks so much like real fur, that moment it leaves the atelier no one can tell it’s not the real thing.  The decision certainly makes good business sense.  Vegan fashion on the rise as people are looking more for conscious clothing; basically, faux fur is - finally- no longer a faux paus.

It’s a fashion move of which we’re sure that even PETA will approve.
