Orlando, Fla. – April 5, 2010 – Best-selling author, Nick Nanton, Esq., The Celebrity Lawyer and co-founder of the Celebrity Branding Agency®, was recently quoted in a Los Angeles Times article titled, “Fur: In Vogue and in the Line of Fire,” written by Susan Carpenter. The article ran on March 28th, 2010, and delves into the marketing practices of controversial animal rights advocacy group, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA.) The article specifically dealt with PETA’s controversial campaigns to discourage the wearing of fur.
In the article, Nick commented on how PETA uses celebrities to help advocate the banning of fur clothing. “PETA isn’t going to the Roseanne Barrs of the world,” said Nick Nanton. “”They’re going to people who set trends. You’ve seen them in US Weekly showing you what to wear before. Now they’re going to show you what not to wear.”
“Fur has always been associated with glamour and sexiness, so the closer you can get to glamour and sexiness and show people, ‘Hey, you can be sexy without fur,’ that’s the most successful pairing,” Nanton continued.
