// Dolce & Gabbana goes fur free as part of commitment with In Defense of Animals
// The animal protection organisation has been campaigning to end the fur trade since the 1980s
Dolce & Gabbana has said it is going fur and Angora free with the international animal protection organisation, In Defense of Animals (IDA).
IDA celebrated the Dolce & Gabbana announcement after 9000 people signed an alert urging the company go fur-free.
The organisation has been campaigning to end the fur trade since the 1980s.
Dolce & Gabbana is one of many fashion houses enacting a fur ban.
In Defense of Animals is urging more designers to follow in Dolce & Gabbana’s footsteps.
“Clothing and accessories needn’t harm animals. We urge all designers to follow suit by ditching all fabrics made from animal fur and skin,” Communications director, Fleur Dawes said.
