“Designing Women” Thursday: Suzanne Sugarbaker models fur coat in fashion show and chaos ensues
Designing Women writers had to work awfully hard to top the previous year’s fashion show episode when Julia (Dixie Carter) went down the runway with the back of her dress tucked into her pantyhose – and she wasn’t wearing any underwear.
So in this episode from season four, Suzanne (Delta Burke) is representing the design firm at the annual charity event and she’s modeling a controversial outfit: a fur pullover and matching fur hat.
Right when she takes the runway, anti-fur protesters start heckling her and this little exchange is my favorite:
Protestor: 50 animals died because of that coat!
Suzanne: Wanna make it 51?
Things then descend into chaos and Suzanne ends up injuring her arm after flying off the runway. I think you’ll really enjoy these two clips!
