Dolce & Gabbana ditches fur and angora
Dolce & Gabbana has shared its commitment to going fur and Angora free with the international animal protection organization, In Defense of Animals (IDA).
IDA has been campaigning to end the fur trade since the 1980s. It celebrated the Dolce & Gabbana announcement after 9,000 people signed an alert urging the company go fur-free.
Dolce & Gabbana is one of many fashion houses enacting a fur ban. This comes as consumer demand for compassionately made fashion continues to mount.
In Defense of Animals is urging more designers to follow in Dolce & Gabbana’s footsteps.
Communications director, Fleur Dawes, said: “Clothing and accessories needn’t harm animals. We urge all designers to follow suit by ditching all fabrics made from animal fur and skin.”
