Helping the Environment by Going Fur-Free

Once upon a time, fur was an indicator of true luxury. Major fashion houses sourced exotic furs from all of over the world. For years, fur was so essential to style that there was an entire money-making industry surrounding it. However, as times changed wearing mink around your neck or fox fur around your wrists became an indicator of something entirely different: animal cruelty and unethical practices. Fur farming has resulted in countless animals losing their lives for the sake of garment production. As activists became increasingly aware of the fashion world's demand for fur farming, they fervently condemned notable brands, calling them out for such an unsustainable, harmful process.

In recent years, sustainability has taken center stage within the fashion realm. There has been a conscious effort to create clothing that does not trigger a domino effect of environmental damage. In the wake of this movement towards sustainable acts and ethical initiatives, notable bands like PradaStella McCartney, and Versace have sworn off fur completely. This detachment from the fur industry is symptomatic of a major shift in fashion, one that might ultimately lead to an entirely fur-free future. In honor of Earth Month, find out which designer labels have sworn off fur, showing that faux is just as luxurious.
