Animal rights activists have protested against fur at London Fashion Week.

The campaigners – representing animal rights charity PETA – painted the slogan ‘wear your own skin’ across their bare chests.

They encouraged passers-by to stand up for animals by leaving fur, leather, shearling, and other animal-derived materials out of their wardrobes.

‘Not ours’

Activist Charlotte Bone, (pictured far left), said: “Whether it’s the fur of a frightened fox or angora rabbit or the skin of a gentle calf, it’s not fabric and it’s not ours for the taking.

“With so many innovative, high-quality vegan fabrics available, there’s simply no excuse for wearing an animal’s skin or hair.”


According to PETA: “On fur farms, minks, foxes, and other animals spend their entire lives confined to tiny, filthy cages before finally being killed by poisoning, gassing, electrocution, or neck-breaking.

“Cows destined to be slaughtered for leather endure painful mutilations, branding, tail-docking, and dehorning without painkillers.

“In shearing sheds, sheep are cut, kicked, punched, and sometimes killed by impatient workers.”
