When it comes to fashion, everyone has a different taste. While fur is sometimes considered "classic," advocates for animal welfare prioritize the life of an animal above a statement coat or hat. Now, London Fashion Week is officially getting into that train of thought, as they've gone fur-free during their fashion week for the first time.
London Fashion Week Spring/Summer happens every September. This year, after checking in to see what materials the participating designers were using, the British Fashion Council announced that they would be entirely fur-free this season. This makes them the first major fashion week to do so.
Notably, going fur-free is not the official policy of the council. In fact, their chief executive, Caroline Rush, made a point to clarify that they do "not define or control the creative process of the designers."
