Donna Karan, 819 Madison Ave. (between 68th&69th Sts.)
On December 22, 2008, PETA sent out an e-mail alert that rippled across an ecstatic animal rights community: Donna Karan, infamous fur-using fashion designer, had announced that all her Fall 2009 lines would be fur-free and that she had "no plans" to use fur in the future.
Imagine the euphoria this caused among activists everywhere, especially those who had stood in the rain, the snow and the freezing cold, showing their disgust at the depravity of her "fashion", lined up in protest outside her store. The rabbits, so we thought, were just a little bit safer in this world.
