London Fashion Week statement from IFF CEO Mark Oaten

I can confirm that the British Fashion Council have not banned fur at fashion week. They have made no such statement and do not have a anti fur policy.

Sadly last year those brands who had fur on the catwalk faced aggressive protestors – shouting and spitting and unacceptable behaviour.

With this in mind brands have decided to avoid showing fur to have a peaceful show.

It’s a sad day when bullying and intimidation can end the freedom of choice for designers in this way.
