Re-Styling Testimonials for Furs

Mrs G from Cape Town inherited three very old outdated fur coats and stoles she would never wear, being a modern career woman. From these garments, which once took up precious space in her closet, Erich Fischer Furriers restyled all 3 into the most beautiful eye-catching bedroom throw with two matching cushions. Another fine idea and tribulation that the fur industry is a recyclable and resourceful industry.

Mrs D of Johannesburg, Gauteng, owned a heavy, outdated, classical style minx coat which she loved wearing in the years passed on her Christmas skiing trips in the Alps. She felt that as time passed, the coat was becoming a weight burden. She visited Robert Fischer Furs with the idea of buying a shorter, lighter and a more “with the times” fur garment to carry on her love for travel to freezing Europe.
Robert advised strongly not to sell this coat, rather to restyle it into the desired style she had in mind. Robert designed an exciting new fur garment for her, which she can wear anywhere, including on her skiing holiday.
From the remaining fur, Robert designed a second garment – a stunning easy-to-wear gile – for Mrs D.

A very happy young lady inherited this fur coat from her grandmother – It was over 50 years old! Erich Fischer Furs restyled her grandmother’s coat into two beautiful fur garments into styles which the client chose.

Mrs H from Johannesburg North was given her first fur, a tan colour Kolinsky fur coat, which she restyled to a sporty sleeveless fur gile, and a magnificent Azurine mink jacket which was originally bought by her father for her mother some +/- 49 years ago.
