….. Announces that during 2009, her
designs will go FUR FREE !
Thanks to the hard work of PETA’s staff, members, and volunteers and after nearly a year of pressuring designer Donna Karan to drop fur from her designs—by protesting outside her boutiques, crashing her runway show, and exposing her cruel use of fur online—
Donna Karan has announced that all her Fall 2009 lines will be fur-free and that she has “no plans” to use fur in the future.
Well done, everyone!
Karan’s turnaround came days after PETA launched our online campaign and after mega–fashion guru Tim Gunn sent Karan and designer Giorgio Armani a video that he narrated for PETA showing animals skinned alive for their fur and urged them to open their eyes to the violent and bloody fur industry.
Thank you for helping to make this happen. Let’s keep going strong! While Donna Karan has followed in the footsteps of top designers—including Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, and Calvin Klein—Armani still refuses to stop using fur. Armani claims that he “only” uses fur from rabbits who are butchered for meat. We hope that you will take this opportunity to contact Armani to tell him that the cruelty depicted in this video on fur farms in both China and France show animals who are used for both fur and meat. Tell him that even if the meat of gentle rabbits killed for their fur is sold to be eaten, the rabbits endure the same suffering.
Thank you for helping make the world safer for fur-bearing animals, and best wishes for a happy and humane holiday season!
