Local trench-coat guru Aimee Cho of Gryphon is about to launch a line of awesomely real-feeling fake fur coats. She's pioneering the use of "a wonderfully luxurious faux fur, sourced from special mills, that looks and feels like a completely different species from the polyester nightmares of fakes-gone-by," and she'll supplement this miracle fabric by recycling fur from vintage coats she's found. Vegans (and minks, and foxes, and sables) everywhere are psyched. [Style File]
