Another Fashion Giant Chooses To Make Compassion The Fashion; Donna Karan & DKNY Go Fur-Free!

WAN is thrilled to announce that another fashion giant Donna Karan and DKNY have decided to make compassion the fashion and Go Fur-free starting next year.

Per The Humane Society International,
Morris Goldfarb, CEO of G-III, Donna Karan and DKNY’s parent company, revealed the decision on Thursday in a Fourth Quarter and Full Year Fiscal 2018 Earnings Conference. The company came to its decision due to its relationship with the Humane Society of the United States.

“HSI is delighted that since Gucci declared fur to be ‘out-dated’ designers have been racing to prove their relevance by dropping the archaic material,” Wendy Higgins, HSI’s Director of International Media, said in a statement. “In the latest designer declaration, this mornings brands DKNY and Donna Karan pledged to ban fur cruelty from their collections.”

Donna Karan and DKNY Joins Gucci, Armani, Tommy Hilfiger, Versace and Michael Kors just to name a few of the high-fashion giants that have made the important decision that animal fur is cruel and not fashion.

Please take a moment to thank these progressive designers for their ground-breaking move towards a more compassionate world of fashion! We hope that many other designers around the world follow suit! @DonnaKaran @DKNY @Gucci @GiorgioArmani @TommyHilfiger @ThomasJHilfiger @MichaelKors
