Paris Jackson: “All high end fashion brands will soon switch over to no-fur & anti animal cruelty”
In a series of tweets, Paris Jackson, model, actress and daughter of Michael Jackson, explained why she left the Dior fashion show on May 25.
Dior’s spring/summer Cruise 2019 Collection show had a “Mexican-inspired rodeo” theme, which included the use of horses. While it was initially reported that Jackson angrily stormed out, she clarified the situation on Twitter:
“to be clear, i did not “storm out” of the show. i quietly got up and walked out trying my hardest to not cause a scene, because i do not support animals being branded and whipped. not trying to become enemies in the fashion world in any way, but i will always be myself.”
“furthermore, i was not ‘enraged,’ just taken by surprise and a little heartbroken. and i have no doubt that all high end fashion brands will soon switch over to no-fur and anti animal cruelty, as that seems to be the pattern here. and we should all be very excited about that! :)”
Earlier last month, Jackson joined Stella McCartney and Miley Cyrus at the 2018 Met Gala, where they spoke about sustainable fashion.
