Does DVF really support Animal Rights?
Diane von Furstenberg is a strong advocate for animal rights. In a 2013 interview with Vogue, she said "I am a big animal lover. I think animals should have the same rights as humans." She has spoken out against the use of fur in fashion, and supports the use of cruelty-free materials instead. Von Furstenberg also believes that animals should be kept in humane conditions, and that they should not be used for laboratory testing.
