Dolce & Gabbana Joins The Hottest Trend In Fashion - No More Animal Fur

Dolce & Gabbana joins other fashion giants that ditched animal furs in their collections. So no animal fur will be seen on D&G shows on the catwalks.

Dolce & Gabbana will switch to eco-friendly fur accessories and clothing but will continue to work with fur specialists to preserve jobs and know-how.
