Prada Is Going Fur-Free Later This Year

Prada is officially going fur-free! The luxury fashion house has responded to animal welfare groups by taking action, and beginning with the company's Spring/Summer 2020 (SS2020) women's collections, Prada will no longer use any fur. Most designers debut their Spring/Summer collections during the previous fall, meaning Prada will be fur-free in just a few months, come fall 2019.

According to the Prada Group's press website, Prada will follow Fur Free Retailer's definition of fur, which is defined as "the pelt of any animal — including, but not limited to, mink, fox, rabbit, karakul lamb, and raccoon dog — killed mainly for its fur."  By the time the SS2020 collections debut, Prada will no longer use fur in any of its garments — and neither will Prada's subsidiaries Miu Miu, Church's, or Car Shoe, according to the BBC.
