Oscar de La Renta is the latest fashion brand to make the announcement that they’re going fur free.
According to media reports, including WWD.com, the brand announced the switch Monday, August 2, 2021 and is planning to be fur-free by the end of October.
“Oscar de la Renta does not use fur in its fashion collections or sell fur in its stores, and will not in the future,” the company said in a much-quoted statement. “In addition, once the license ‘sell-off’ period ends, no new products that use fur and bear the Oscar de la Renta trademark will be offered for sale.”
Numerous brands have gone fur free in 2021, including Canada Goose, who long held that coyote fur was necessary for their parkas (but has dropped it in the name of sustainability), and the Neiman Marcus Group.
The Fur-Bearers congratulates Oscar de la Renta for this ethical, sustainable choice and look forward to seeing even more brands make the choice to Make Fur History.
