Designer Cassandra Verity Green caused quite a stir at the Central Saint Martins fashion show when she unveiled a line of perspex fishbowl backpacks and purses. The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals wasn’t having any of it. “While we understand that a graduate fashion show is about grabbing attention and headlines, we do have concerns that using a living creature to create a novel or unusual accessory encourages people to see them as replaceable ornaments, rather than living creatures in need of care and commitment,” said a RSPCA spokeswoman in a statement.
