Burberry Implements Fur-Free Policy
Fashion brand Burberry has recently announced it is going fur-free and taking steps to become a more sustainable brand.
According to Vogue:
“Starting with Riccardo Tisci’s debut collection this September 17, Burberry is banning rabbit, fox, mink, and Asiatic raccoon fur, as well as angora. Shearling and leather will still be used in collections, and the remaining fur products are slowly being phased out of the line.”
In addition to going fur-free, the company has also announced it would end the practice of burning unsold merchandise.
As Vogue notes,
“Moral values and political resonance will be this season’s—and possibly the future’s—biggest trend.”
