Imposter Faux Fur Partners with Farm Sanctuary to Give Animals a Royalty Share of the Products They Inspire
Carrie Underwood, Angie Harmon, Emmy Rossum and “The City’s” Olivia Palermo Among Hollywood Elite Sporting Brand’s Universal Symbol for Animal Friendly Products
WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. - February 18 - For everyone who has ever put on a gorgeous article of faux fur, only to spend the entire day worrying "I hope no one thinks this is real," comes Imposter, a compassionate new fashion initiative that aims to make animal-inspired fashions recognizable as animal friendly FROM THE OUTSIDE and give animals a well-deserved cut of the profits. The revolutionary new brand has partnered with Farm Sanctuary, the nation's leading farm animal protection organization, to ensure that animals are given a royalty share from the sale of all Imposter-branded products.
The chic faux fur creations all bear the "IM Imposter" logo, the universal symbol for animal friendly products, and guarantee two things: 1) That no animal life was taken for the product to exist. 2) That animals received a royalty share from each Imposter-branded product. Farm Sanctuary's iconic logo will appear on Imposter's website and on the hang tags of all products, and a percentage of the profits from each sale will go to support the nonprofit organization's critical rescue, education and advocacy work on behalf of abused farm animals. Online shoppers can also choose Farm Sanctuary from a list of carefully selected animal protection organizations to receive an additional 10% at check-out.
"Many companies copy and showcase the most beautiful of nature's inventions, often taking everything including breath and life in the most heinous ways," said Imposter Founder Jaclyn Sharp. "Imposter, on the other hand, harnesses the power of enterprise to save lives. We are honored to give a portion of the profits of every sale to the more than 1,000 rescued animals who reside at Farm Sanctuary's shelters and to the organization's advocacy efforts to improve the lives of billions of animals raised and slaughtered for food every year in this country."
The chic, cruelty-free fashion initiative includes faux fur hats, vests and ear-muffs, and is currently available at Henri Bendel in New York City, other high-end stores and boutiques, and online through Imposter4animals.com. The Imposter faux fur pieces have already attracted the attention of such Hollywood stars as Carrie Underwood, Angie Harmon, Emmy Rossum, Jessica Lownes (90210), and Olivia Palermo (The City). The brand plans to expand their line into other faux animal products in the future, including imitation "leather."
"We are thrilled to partner with a compassionate, lifesaving brand like Imposter," said Farm Sanctuary's President and Co-Founder Gene Baur. "By creating a label that is not only synonymous with cruelty-free fashion, but also a coveted fashion accessory in and of itself, Jaclyn Sharp and her revolutionary business concept will help shift the demand curve toward animal friendly products and away from those that exploit."
