International Fur Trade Federation's annual REMIX design competition | Wallpaper* Thom Barends has been on our radar for a while now. Earlier this year, he was a finalist in the 2013 H&M Design awards, impressing us with his chic but confrontational ensembles of long skirts worn with tailored hoodies and Puffa jackets.

Now Barends, from the Netherlands has upped his game by winning gold at the International Fur trade Federation’s tenth annual REMIX competition (as well as scooping the Origin Assured Award). Inspired by Jean-Paul goude’s maverick photo collages, today’s roller coaster economics, 1980s decadence and the ramshackle clothing of street beggars, Barends’ collection for REMIX was super-luxe Blade Runner meets fur-trimmed Rhythm Nation and proved the Amsterdam-born designer as a bonafide name for the future. REMIX’s aim is to encourage, inspire and support young designers as they develop and explore their relationships with fur.

Fur Trade Valued at 40 Billion Dollars | British Vogue. THE fur trade is worth more than $40 billion (£24 billion), roughly the same amount as the global Wi-Fi market. Figures released today by the International Fur Federation show that sales of fur products are estimated at $35.8 billion, while farming is valued at $7.8 billion. The industry employs more than one million people, based on statistics from 2012 and 2013. "It's easy to get caught up in the emotions that the business can generate, but the truth is that the fur trade is an economic cornerstone in Europe and beyond," IFF CEO Mark Oaten told The Telegraph.

"The proponents of the slave trade and child labour also used to try to justify their abuses by arguing that they make money, and the fur industry's making the same pathetic attempt," a PETA spokesperson told us. Fur trade - Wikipedia. The fur trade is a worldwide industry dealing in the acquisition and sale of animal fur. Since the establishment of a world fur market in the early modern period, furs of boreal, polar and cold temperate mammalian animals have been the most valued.

Historically the trade stimulated the exploration and colonization of Siberia, northern North America, and the South Shetland and South Sandwich Islands. Today the importance of the fur trade has diminished; it is based on pelts produced at fur farms and regulated fur-bearer trapping, but has become controversial. Animal rights organizations oppose the fur trade, citing that animals are brutally killed and sometimes skinned alive.[1] Fur has been replaced in some clothing by synthetic imitations, for example, as in ruffs on hoods of parkas.

Russian fur trade[edit] Before the European colonization of the Americas, Russia was a major supplier of fur pelts to Western Europe and parts of Asia.
