Italy's Gucci will stop using fur in its designs from next year, joining a growing number of fashion houses looking at alternatives amid pressure from animal rights activists and changing consumer tastes.
The new fur-free policy will include mink, coyote, raccoon dog, fox, rabbit and karakul (also known as Swakara, Persian lamb or astrakhan), and all others species bred or caught for fur.
"Being socially responsible is one of Gucci's core values, and we will continue to strive to do better for the environment and animals", Bizzari said.
The company's chief executive, Marco Bizzarri, said the move to go fur free formed part of a commitment to "sustainability".
"In selecting a new creative director I wanted to find someone who shared a belief in the importance of the same values", Bizzarri said. "Together, by committing to a culture of goal, taking responsibility and encouraging respect, inclusivity, and empowerment, we want to create the necessary conditions for a progressive approach to sustainability", Bizzarri said in a statement.
The investigation found real animal fur being sold in House of Fraser and fast fashion outlet Missguided - despite both retailers having fur-free policies.
In a statement, Humane Society International president Kitty Block said: "Gucci going fur-free is a game-changer".
Speaking at the 2017 Kering Talk at the London College of Fashion, the Italian luxury fashion brand's CEO, Marco Bizzarri, announced that starting with their spring/summer 2018 collection, Gucci will join the Fur-Free Alliance.
