London Fashion Week Will Be Fur Free
Share This Article:
Back in February, a poll conducted by PETA in the lead up to February’s London Fashion Week showed that 95% of the autumn/winter 2018 collections shown would be fur-free. Now, however, a survey carried out by the British Fashion Council as part of its Positive Fashion initiative suggests that for the first time ever, this month’s LFW will be 100% fur-free, as none of the designers on the official schedule is planning to use fur in their collections. Recent changes of heart against using fur among various brands- including Burberry, Roland Mouret, Gucci, Michael Kors, and Mulberry- suggested that the tide may finally have been changing and now, despite fur-farming being illegal in the UK for fifteen years, this will be the city’s first ever fashion week to fully reflect it.
