And the Official Winner of the ‘Fantastic in Fur’ Photo Contest is…
Vivienne McGuire of Hamilton, Ohio
Here’s Vivienne’s personal story about her love affair with fur!
Vivienne McGuire, a 43 year old fashionista, was born and raised in Montreal, Canada. She recounts that she always had a passion for fur right from the very beginning, from the very moment she got her first fur coat at the age of five. It was love at first sight for Vivienne and she wore her white rabbit fur coat everywhere–she even admitted to having a matching one for her Barbie!
Currently married and living in Cincinnati, Vivienne has continued her love affair with fur and now owns about 20 fur coats and vests (most of which are still in Canada because Ohio winters are mild). Not just a fashion connoisseur, McGuire studied fashion design and loves to put her skills to use by buying vintage furs and remodeling them to make them trendy and fresh.
A funny little fact is that Vivienne’s winning image was a quick self-portrait that she took with her iPad while driving her pickup truck. The trendy fur piece she is wearing in the winning image is a silver fox cape from the 1930′s.
Congrats Vivienne! You wear fur well and we are sure you will enjoy your Helen Yarmak original fox cropped jacket with oversized black zipper.
