Keeping Collar Up on Faux Fur Jacket

I purchased a 60's faux fur Leopard coat on Ebay and the collar won't stay up. Does anyone know what I can do to reinforce this limp collar so that it stays up on it's own? Any advice will help. Thanks

Could you open the collar and put some boning where you need the extra structure?

You could open the collar and slip a piece of thin plastic inside to firm up the collar or maybe a little starch?

I'd cut a piece of plastic from a milk jug or a bleach jug to fit inside the collar.
