And so do we.

Just days before she is to present her new collection as part of the London Fashion Week schedule, the designer announced that exotic skins will no longer be part of her designs, a step that other brands have taken in order to shift the tolerance against animal cruelty.

“As a business, we have been looking to action the use of more ethically sourced products that have less environmental impact for some time,” Victoria Beckham spokesperson told WWD.

“We are happy to confirm that we will cease using exotic skins in all future collections as of our main fall 2019 ready-to-wear presentation. This decision reflects the wishes of not only the brand, but also that of our customers.”

She is also one of the designers who has never used fur in her collections.

At the end of last year, Chanel announced that exotics will no longer feature in their products, and Vivienne Westwood as well as Diane von Furstenberg have said the same.

We sense a shift in the fashion landscape, and we are all for it.
