Versace on the floor will have fur no more…

If you follow fashion and street style, you’ve probably noticed a lot of fur, both real and faux on the runways and on the avenues. There’s just something so luxe about dressing in soft, fluffy fabrics, but is it necessary? 2018 is a year of change, with many luxury heavy weights like Michael Kors, Gucci, and Jimmy Choo pledging to cease creating with real animal fur.

The latest brand to commit to “no fur” is the always edgy, always sexy Versace.  The fashion house’s matriarch, Donatella, made a statement during a recent interview with 1843 Magazine:

“Fur? I am out of that. I don’t want to kill animals to make fashion. It doesn’t feel right.”

We’re sure the brand’s supporters, including animal-lover Lady Gaga (who even has a song called ”Donatella”) will support this statement.

We can’t help but wonder, could another member of the Versace family have influenced this decision? The adorable Audrey Versace, Donatella’s beloved dog, is a major part of the designer’s life.
