Fashion designer Stella McCartney has vowed to keep up her fight against fur on the catwalk.

Fashion designer Stella McCartney has vowed to keep up her fight against fur on the catwalk.

The Brit, who also refuses to work with leather, lent her New York boutique to the charity PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) for its fashion week party.

Guests including musician Moby and Scottish actor Alan Cumming were toasted by host Pamela Anderson for speaking out against fur.

McCartney, whose parents Paul and Linda brought her up as a vegetarian, could not be there because she was in Paris putting the finishing touches to her new collection.

But she sent a special message to the “veggie sex gods“.

“You all rock for keeping the dream alive, we all need to keep pissing people off with our ’uncool’ love of animals,” McCartney said.

“So a huge congratulations for standing your ground from both myself and the animals.”
