As a sign of commitment to animal welfare Copenhagen Fashion Week has banned the use of fur and fur garments in this year’s show.
The fur ban has become a global movement after many prominent fashion houses, including Gucci, Versace, and Prada, as well as global brands such as Michael Kors and Tommy Hilfiger, make the switch to 100 per cet fur-free fashion.
All over the world, fashion weeks are one of the highlights for designers, buyers, and the public. The decision to ban fur on the catwalk follows changes in consumer preferences and growing activism against animal cruelty in fashion.
In 2018, London Fashion Week became the first fashion week to ban fur on the catwalk, followed by Finland’s counterapart, which even went one step further and banned all animal products, including animal leather, from 2019. In response to growing consumer demand for more animal-friendly fashion, the organizers of Amsterdam Fashion Week banned fur in the same year.
Following its decision to ban fur in the Copenhagen Fashion Week from 2022, the event has received praise from Justice Emma Hakansson, Co-founder, Collective Fashion
