Italian fashion house Gucci to go fur-free in 2018, says CEO

Gucci will go fur-free next year and auction off all its remaining animal fur items, the Italian fashion house’s president and CEO Marco Bizzarri has announced.
     The changes will come into force with the brand’s spring-summer 2018 collection, Bizzarri said during a talk at the London College of Fashion.
     Gucci’s president said on Wednesday the move demonstrated “our absolute commitment to making sustainability an intrinsic part of our business”.
     Bizzarri said the new approach was made possible thanks to Gucci’s creative director, Alessandro Michele, who was appointed in 2015.
     “In selecting a new creative director I wanted to find someone who shared a belief in the importance of the same values,” Bizzarri said. “I sensed that immediately on meeting Alessandro for the first time.”
     As part of the change a charity auction of the fashion house’s remaining animal fur items will be held, with the proceeds going to the animal rights organisations Humane Society International and LAV. Kitty Block, president of Humane Society International, celebrated the luxury brand’s move as a “compassionate decision”. “Gucci going fur-free is a huge game-changer,” she said in a statement. “For this Italian powerhouse to end the use of fur because of the cruelty involved will have a huge ripple effect throughout the world of fashion.”
