Fashion Designers Fight Against Animal Abuse

Fashion Designers Fight Against Animal Abuse with New Compassion Fashion

Paw Justice and 10 well-known fashion designers are uniting in the fight against animal abuse in the recently launched Compassion Fashion campaign.

Stolen Girlfriends Club, Thing Thing, Peter Alexander, Workshop, Ruby, Federation, Zambesi, Mr G, Hydro 74 and ilabb have each donated an animal inspired design to feature on t-shirts and singlets. All proceeds from sales of the limited edition designs will go to Paw Justice.

“The funds raised will help us continue our work in re-homing animals, raising awareness of dog fighting and puppy milling, and feeding thousands of animals across New Zealand. Without their support (and yours) we wouldn’t be able to do what we do,” said Paw Justice Co-founder, Craig Dunn.

Compassion Fashion runs for the next three months with t-shirts and singlets available for purchase at Each designer’s print will only be available for 10 days, so animal and fashion lovers will need to keep an eye out as new designer prints are released.

This week’s print is designed by New Zealand label Thing Thing, and features founder Dan Buckley’s spoilt cat Barry.
