“I think the fashion industry can get away with a lot, and it’s getting away with murder. Fur is the most unnecessary thing in the world. Those animals aren’t eaten. [The people in the fur industry] try and pretend that the animals are a byproduct, but they are not. They are bred to be killed, to be made into bags.

“The fashion industry is supposed to be modern and I think that working with the same material, for thousands and thousands of years, when it’s not environmentally friendly, and it’s not needed, I think, it’s really old-fashioned.”

—British designer Stella McCartney speaking to Broadly about why fur needs to be phased out of fashion.
