Are you a fan of the fur footwear and jacket collection of Gucci? Well, its time to say goodbye as they announced that starting next year, they will be going fur-free in their designs. This includes the banning of mink, fox, raccoon and rabbit fur usage.
Gucci President and CEO Marco Bizzarri made the big announcement during his speech at the 2017 Kering Talk held at the London College of Fashion.
He said that being socially responsible is one of Gucci’s core values and they will continue to strive and do better for the environment and the animals. Marco also added that Gucci will be partnering with Humane Society of the United States and Lega Anti Vivezione which are both animal rights organizations. They aim to help and support the move for “Changing the luxury fashion industry for the better.”
He shared that as fashion becomes more and more ethical, supply chains that revolve around animals will be a thing in the past.
Gucci followed this beautiful advocacy after Hugo Boss, Stella McCartney, Giorgio Armani, Vivian Westwood and Calvin Klein.
