Fresh Furs

No longer relegated to designers of a certain age, the fur industry is relying on a cast of fresh faces, including Peter Som, Chris Benz, Doo-Ri Chung and Zac Posen, to help woo new customers.

Another relative newcomer to the scene is Kati Stern, who started designing the Venexiana label three years ago. "Fur has been around for eons. And like everything else, it needs fresh eyes," she said. "It's an integral part of my collection and I plan to show more and more fur every year." Peter Som, for his part, welcomes the new medium for his designs. "I love treating fur like I would any fabric — mixing textures, colors, and giving it an airy touch. It's all about creating romance and elegance. Fur ups the ante a thousand percent."
