Dolce & Gabbana has officially announced that it will stop working with animal fur in its future collections.
In 2017, Italian house Gucci became one of the first major luxury brands to announce that it was going fur-free, a move that Humane Society International described at the time as “a major turning point”
The Italian brand becomes one of the first major fashion brands to announce this decision, however, it will continue to work with “master furriers” to create “a sustainable faux fur alternative that uses recycled and recyclable materials.”
In recent years, companies such as Chanel, Prada, and Burberry have taken the same action in favor of animals.
“Dolce & Gabbana is working for a more sustainable future that cannot contemplate the use of animal fur.”Fedele Usai
“end its association with the cruelty of fur and transition to more humane and innovative materials.”Joh Vinding
The fashion world is increasingly taking action in favor of climate change, recycling, and animal protection, another great action in favor of animals was taken by Billie Eilish who negotiated a fur-free compromise with the American brand Oscar de la Renta in exchange for wearing her designs at last year’s Met Gala.
Billie’s team informed her that she does not work with brands in the fur business, and pushed for a historic change: no more animal fur at Oscar de la Renta.
In a statement to the New York Times, the singer said:
I find it shocking that the use of fur is not completely banned in 2021.
