This year's September 22nd will debut a fashion show aimed at showing how the latest in terms of style and clothing need not be achieved by violating animal rights.
Thus, H-Couture 2012, an event organized by The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), uses fashion and celebrities to militate in favor of a more humane society, which does not abuse animals in any ways.
The latest pieces of information with respect to this meeting of animal rights defenders and fashion lovers is that Paul Wesley and Torrey DeVitto, stars of acclaimed TV series 'The Vampire Diaries,' agreed to act as hosts.
Whatever funds are raised during this event will go directly to HSUS’s Fur-Free Campaign and the Hollywood Outreach program, both of which serving to convince designers and retailers that fake-fur is the way to go, regardless of the trends they are trying to promote.

reports that, speaking about this upcoming fashion show, DeVitto explained how, “Fashion should be fun, and I don’t see how wearing animal fur can be anything other than cruel and unnecessary.”
Moreover, “This event will show that anyone can be fashion-conscious without animals having to pay the price.”
Wesley backs up her statements, arguing that, “We are excited to be hosting the first ever H-Couture event on behalf of The Humane Society of the United States because we both support events that promote compassion for animals.”
As was to be expected, the HSUS is more than delighted to have these two celebrities host their H-couture event, more so since their being quite famous will probably get more people to listen to the humane message the organization in striving to bring forth.
“We’re delighted that Paul and Torrey are on board for our first major fashion event. Designers and their celebrity clients are key to setting new trends that can affect societal values, and supporting fur-free fashion can help prevent the suffering and save the lives of millions of both wild caught and captive-bred animals,” says Beverly Kaskey, animal rights defender working with the HSUS.
