According to vegan charity PETA, Stockholm Fashion Week has confirmed that it will be free of any garments and accessories made from animal skin.

The event will go online due to COVID-19 and will take place over three days, from August 25th-27th.

The event’s website states: “Stockholm Fashion Week takes a leap into the ‘new normal’ in fashion, discussing digitization, climate action, circularity, and diversity throughout the three-day program,”

“Experts, editors, innovators, brands, and scientists will feature in Zoom talks as well as in live webinars, sharing insights and ideas on how to keep global warming below 1.5 degrees, and what we all can do to make the world of fashion inclusive and accessible for all.”

 Commenting on the move to go fur and animal skin free, PETA added: “By opting not to showcase fur or exotic skins, [Stockholm Fashion Week is] spearheading a new, compassionate, eco-friendly era in fashion…

 “In 2020, being fur-free is the norm. As hundreds of designers and fashion houses have said no to the cruelly obtained material, more and more events are giving fur the cold shoulder, too…

 “We look forward to seeing other events jump on the bandwagon. No one should be killed for a killer look.”
