These Are All the Fur Free Luxury Brands, Retailers, and Magazines

Online fashion news publication Fashionista has published a list of all the luxury brands, retailers, and magazines that have gone fur free.

Many brands have recently announced that they are going fur free including brands like Gucci, Donna Karen New York, and more. Versace is the latest luxury brand to announce that it’s going fur free.

In an interview with The Economist 1843 Style Editor Luke Leitch, Donatella Versace said she would no longer use fur in any of her designs. She then said, “fur? I’m out of that. I don’t want to kill animals to make fashion. It doesn’t feel right.”

There have even been entire cities and countries that have gone fur free and banned the sale of fur with San Fransisco being the latest to do so when it announced that it has banned the sale of fur beginning in 2019.
