Now Versace also goes fur-free
Gone are the days when wearing animal fur was considered a status symbol by fashionistas who loved to showcase their collection of minks and the like. With the advent of ethical and sustainable fashion, more and more fashion houses are replacing real fur with faux fur.
The latest fashion brand to give up animal fur is Versace. In an interview in The Economist’s 1843 magazine, Donatella Versace said that she would stop using use real animal fur designs for her family’s fashion house.
“Fur? I’m out of that,” Versace said. “I don’t want to kill animals to make fashion. It doesn’t feel right.”
Signs of status in fashion have always evolved; it’s about time that wearing dead animals for the sake of glamour was relegated to the history books under the vast “human folly” section.
