It was 1971, FOF Susan Grant’s first year in New York City. She moved to The Big Apple after landing her first job on Wall Street. “I was bringing home $83 a week,” she remembers. Her first big splurge? The fur coat pictured below (left) from Alixandre Furs. Today, the coat is long gone (she sold it) and she favors a fur vest designed by Ann Demeulemeester (pictured, right).
“I bought my very first fur for myself when I moved to NYC. It was muskrat with a raccoon collar. It was one of my first big-girl, big-city purchases.” -Susan Grant
