Iconic Designer Victoria Beckham Bans Animal Skin From Her Future Designs

by | February 19, 2019

The former Spice Girl turned fashion designer Victoria Beckham has banned exotic animal skins from her collections. The move follows years of appeal by animal rights organization People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). Although she has never used fur in her designs, Victoria Beckham has made a promise to ban exotic animal skins from her future collections.

Victorias business has been looking to use more ethically sourced products that have less environmental impacts for some time according to the Popstar turned Designer. The company will adopt this new exotic animal skin policy in her autumn/winter 2019 collection.

The announcement has been praised by PETA who tweeted about the countless animals who will be spared from immense suffering. PETA has also called on other luxury brands to follow Beckham’s kind example.

Change is happening in the fashion industry. Brands that have banned the use of exotic skins include Chanel, Diane Von Furstenberg, and Vivienne Westwood. There is mounting pressure on other high-end designers to end their use of exotic animal skins.

Burberry, Gucci, Versace, and Coach are some more of the luxury brands to take a stand against animal cruelty in recent years by banning the use of such items in their collections, opting for faux alternatives instead.

In September 2018 London Fashion Week became the first major fashion week to ban fur from their catwalk. The announcement by Beckham’s company has come days before their show, which will be held in London again this year after it was moved from New York last year.

This week the iconic designer, Victoria Beckham, announced that Victoria Beauty is officially happening. While there is no launch date yet, we expect to see something by autumn 2019. I haven’t been able to find anything that confirms whether the line will be cruelty-free just yet, though I’m hoping, with her latest move to ban exotic animal skins, it will be.
