Fur flies on the runway at the Dennis Basso Fall 2009 fashion show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in the Promenade at Bryant Park on February 17, 2009 in New York City. Fur is a polarizing topic, so the front row wasn’t exactly brimming with celebrities, but Star Jones braved the possibility of PETA protesters outside Bryant Park wearing a blond coat. The key people were there, such as Anna Wintour and fashion editor Adrien Field (below), both clad in the controversial material. Basso’s collection managed to make pelts look weightless by pairing fur with transparent fabrics. Bucket hats, belts and vests created modern silhouettes.

Derek Warburton timed his appearance at Fashion Week perfectly with The PITA Peltdown At NY Fashion Week Presented by DerekLovesShopping at Bryant Park. Warburton handed out I heart PITA t-shirts and pita bread from a converted hot dog cart to curious onlookers. Where do you stand on the wearing of fur? Maverick or murder?
