Fashion industry and Last Chance for Animals Welcome Dolce & Gabbana’s Fur Ban.

A conscious choice towards a more sustainable, fur-free future.

Last Chance for Animals (LCA) welcomed news that Italian luxury fashion house, Dolce & Gabbana, has pledged to keep fur from future collections.

“Dolce&Gabbana, supported by the Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society International, has chosen to discontinue the use of animal fur in all its Collections starting 2022. With the aim of preserving the craft and skills of the master furriers, Dolce Gabbana said in a statement the luxury brand will continue to collaborate with these artisans in the creation of eco-fur garments and accessories.

“Each year, millions of animals are raised in horrific conditions and brutally killed for clothing and accessories,” said Chris DeRose, Founder and President of LCA. “The destruction of countless animals is not only cruel, but unnecessary. We welcome the news that another high-end brand has committed to a more compassionate fashion industry.”

Dolce & Gabbana joined other well-known designer brands in ditching fur. Canada Goose, Moncler, Prada, Valentino, and Yves St. Laurent are among the luxury fashion brands who have already pledged to go fur-free.

“After years of campaigning and pressure by animal rights advocates, luxury labels are finally waking up to fur-free, the latest fashion trend,” said DeRose. “We hope this movement continues and finally puts an end to the cruel fur industry.”

Dolce & Gabbana’s announcement comes as LCA is leading a nationwide campaign to stop the fur industry. In October 2019, Governor Gavin Newsom signed AB 44 into law, making California the first state in the nation to ban the sale and manufacture of new fur products. Most recently, the city of Ann Arbor, Michigan, banned the retail sale of new fur products.

LCA is an international non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating animal exploitation through education, investigations, legislation, and public awareness campaigns. Since its formation in 1984, LCA has succeeded as one of the nation’s pioneer animal advocacy groups. LCA’s educational and public outreach programs have empowered the public to make positive changes for animals in their communities.
