For two decades Larry Becker’s shop, Dicker and Dicker of Beverly Hills, has specialized in fashions with fur. Now, as California edges closer than ever to banning the sale of new fur, he fears an advancing state bill would be disastrous to his livelihood.
“It would mean the end of the business,” he said. “It would be devastating.”
Assembly Bill 44 would ban the sale and manufacture of new fur products in the state. Beginning in 2022, first-time violators would pay $500—a penalty that could double for further offenses. The exemptions: fur used for religious purposes and Native American cultural practices, and used fur.
“We’re not criminalizing you having grandma’s fur or you even selling grandma’s fur,” said Democratic Assemblywoman Laura Friedman of Glendale, the bill’s author.
Instead she said the aim is to model the values of Californians, who last year passed a ballot measure to ensure that egg-laying hens and certain other farm animals have larger cages.
“The voters of California have said pretty consistently that if they buy a product in California that involves animals, they want to know that those animals were treated humanely,” Friedman said.
If the bill becomes law, California would be the first state to pass such a ban. Cities including West Hollywood, San Francisco and Los Angeles have city ordinances against fur already in place. Hawaii and New York city have also considered similar proposals. The Humane Society of the United States, a co-sponsor of the bill, has reported spending just over $10,000 lobbying […]

Versace & Moschino Sued for Code to Identify Black Shoppers
PLEASANTON (The Fashion Law) — In late December 2016, Christopher Sampino filed a lawsuit against Versace. He claimed that during his two week tenure at the Italian fashion brand’s outlet store in Pleasanton, California, he was harassed as a direct result of his mixed race and ultimately fired after he complained about such treatment.
The lawsuit was the latest in a string of cases filed against the American arms of major high fashion houses in recent years, all centering on claims of alleged race-motivated discrimination.
Defendant Versace USA swiftly denied Sampino’s claims of labor abuses and discrimination, noting that it “does not tolerate discrimination on the basis of race, national origin or any other characteristic protected by our civil rights laws.”
