“News with a Twist” reporter Vanessa Bolano did a great job of putting nutria in context in her feature on Righteous Fur, which aired last night on WGNO-TV in New Orleans. Click “Decked Out in Nutria” to view the clip.
The piece features interviews with Righteous Fur project director Cree McCree and design director Xiomara del Carmen, as well as footage from nutria-ravaged bayous to haute couture runways, with lots of cool closeups of Righteous Fur products. Among them: Darlene Hargreaves’ nutria-trimmed tanks and Julie Ebel’s mini-tophats and clutches, all decked with nutria fur.
These pieces and other Righteous Fur products will be available at Nutria-palooza! on the Bayou in Lafayette, LA, on Saturday, November 5. Our big multimedia fashion show features a spectacular outdoor runway with a cavalcade of models and a wetlands benefit auction of one-of-a-kind fashions.
