Project Runway host Tim Gunn is using New York’s Fashion Week as a way to spread his “no fur” message.

“I’m on a campaign to get as many fashion designers as possible to stop using it,” he said. “I’d just like to sit with them and have a talk and ask, ‘Is it really necessary?'”

Gunn, who appeared Thursday night at Stella McCartney’s boutique along with Taraji P. Henson, Olivia Wilde and representatives of PETA, would like designers and shoppers to understand the consequences of using real fur. “There are other products we can use,” Henson said. “Get a fake fur.”

Henson is currently appearing, sans clothing, in the current ad for PETA’s “Fur? I’d Rather Go Naked” campaign.
