Respect for Animals welcomes Burberry’s decision to drop real fur

Burberry, until now branded ‘furberry’ by Respect for Animals joins other top fashion labels Gucci, Michael Kors, Jimmy Choo and Versace who have all recently announced they will no longer use fur as well as long-time anti-fur designer Stella McCartney

Burberry, until now branded ‘furberry’ by Respect for Animals, joins other top fashion labels Gucci, Michael Kors, Jimmy Choo and Versace which have all recently announced they will no longer use fur as well as long-time anti-fur designer Stella McCartney.

Earlier this year Respect for Animals launched a campaign urging supporters and members of the public to write to Burberry urging the company to drop fur from its range. Thousands of people responded.

Commenting on Burberry’s announcement, Respect for Animal’s Director, Mark Glover said: “We are delighted with today’s statement by Burberry. We have campaigned against the use of fur in fashion for many years and have been in communication with Burberry for quite some time. We were aware that their policy of using fur was under review and congratulate them for taking the responsible and compassionate step of dropping real fur from their range. Simply fantastic! Burberry’s decision is yet another hammer blow for the morally bankrupt fur industry.”

Respect for Animals is in touch with Burberry and hopes the company will take the next logical step and join the Fur Free Retailer programme (see below).
