The project 'Embodying ethics : Endangered' aims to inform the issue of extinction of critical endangered species. By designing a series of hunting jackets that turn into representations of the animal under threat, reminds us of our complicity in the problem. As merely a fashion item, there is a sense in which the hunter jacket empowers without guilt, but then
