Fur-Free Fashion wins support in Shanghai
Walk to the same beat in collaboration with London College of Fashion
ACTAsia’s Fur Free and Sustainable Fashion Show and Forum, held in Shanghai this summer in collaboration with the London College of Fashion (LCF), is helping to pave the way towards a fashionable future with a conscience in China.
Endorsement of the gala and forum by many top international and Chinese designers and celebrities has helped to give the subject of animal fur wide exposure in the media, and win new support from consumers.
You can hear what some of our supporters had to say, and join them by making a pledge of your own to live a fur-free life
Three new China designers joined the Fur Free Retailer scheme: Grace Chen, Maryma, and MW Michael Wong, alongside other international names including Kering Pacific.
The event showcased eight brands: Naparijri (Italy), Pat Gutzik (Poland), MW Michael Wong (China-Hong Kong, USA), Maryma (China), Grace Chen (China-USA), Tiffany Pattinson (China-Hong Kong), Ji Cheng (China), Awakening (China), Polyimide (China), and Macrojoint (China-Taiwan).
We are delighted that our collaborators LCF are now working with us to develop their sustainable fashion course further.
“London College of Fashion is proud to collaborate with ACTAsia to lead the way to educating industry and consumers on sustainable practices for a fur-free future. The College strives to contribute to the fashion industry by educating students to become responsible leaders of tomorrow.”
John Lau, Associate Dean, LCF
Singer-songwriter David Wong performed a ballad about living a fur-free life, which he wrote for the occasion. And acclaimed French ballet dancer Sylvie Guillem and her husband, photographer Gilles Tapie, were also there to receive an award for their contribution to the cause, and lend their voices and support to a fashionable fur-free future.
