GUCCI is the lat­est la­bel to join the Fur Free Al­liance in elim­i­nat­ing animal fur from the spring 2018 col­lec­tion and on­wards. Marco Biz­zarri, pres­i­dent and CEO of Gucci, has an­nounced that the Ital­ian fash­ion house is go­ing to stop pro­duc­ing fur, ac­cord­ing to The Hollywood Re­porter. Gucci’s fur-free de­ci­sion is part of the com­pany’s new 10-year “Cul­ture of Pur­pose” sus­tain­abil­ity plan, which also in­cludes the house’s com­mit­ment to con­trib­ute ¤1 mil­lion as a found­ing part­ner of Unicef’s Girls’ Em­pow­er­ment Ini­tia­tive. The an­nounce­ment comes soon after the brand re­ceived the Green Car­pet Fash­ion award for sus­tain­able in­no­va­tion. Ar­mani an­nounced in 2016 that it was go­ing fur-free.
