Pamela Anderson wants Prada to stop using fur
And she wrote a letter to Miuccia asking her personally
When she isn’t giving sex and relationship advice to Dazed readers, Pamela Anderson is a keen anti-fur advocate. As US Honorary Director for PETA, Anderson has campaigned for the end of fur use in fashion, and once pointedly sent Kim Kardashian a faux fur coat, in an effort to get her to stop wearing the real thing.
Now, Anderson has turned her attention to Prada, writing a letter directly to Miuccia Prada to ask her to make the Italian house fur-free. “I was disappointed to learn that instead of going fur-free, Prada has chosen merely to reduce the amount of animal pelts that it sells,” the letter reads. “Please, I urge you to drop fur immediately,” she continues.
Prada has yet to respond to Anderson’s letter, but conversations around fur use in fashion continue to gain momentum. Over the past year, Burberry, Versace, Tom Ford, Gucci have all vowed to stop using the controversial material. The British Fashion Council has also implemented measures to eradicate the use of fur during LFW.
