Perth-born fashion designer Kym Ellery recently faced criticism from animal activists and PeTA for including fox and rabbit fur pieces in her pre-fall 2016 collection, modeled in Paris this year.
After tens of thousands of people signed PeTA’s petition and bombarded Ellery’s social media with anti-fur messages, Ellery has made the ethical choice to drop fur from her clothing label. From 2017, the label will no longer feature items made with fur.
Hopefully more designers will follow suit!
