This classic fashion item has been banned from London Fashion Week

Fair enough or too far?

Fashionistas from around the globe have descended on London for Fashion Week this week, but they're being warned to leave one favourite piece at home - their fur.

The British Fashion Council, which organises the event, has contacted those set to attend shows in London to advise them not to wear any fur, real or fake, reports Elle.

"We have been made aware that there might be fur protesters outside... on the afternoons of Friday, Saturday and Sunday of London Fashion Week," the council wrote in an email.

"We are managing the situation by working with the metropolitan police to ensure the demonstration is managed correctly and with limited impact. For this reason, we would advise you to avoid wearing any kind of fur, real or fake, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday."

Fur has long been a contentious issue for fashion, with celebrities like Khloe Kardashian, Charlize Theron and Pamela Anderson all coming out against it in the past.

We certainly wouldn't wear the real thing, but no fake fur either? We're not sure the bloggers trying to get snapped for their autumn-winter street style will like that.
