Billie Eilish, an American mega-musician, has her vision and ideas of love and respect for all, as seen by her recent persuasion of Oscar de la Renta to discontinue the use of fur in their costume line.
Taking to her social media profile, Billie Eilish commended Oscar de la Renta for recognising her ideas and accepting her proposal for not using fur in their next collection as a token of respect for animals.
"Thank you @oscardelarenta for designing this BEAUTIFUL dress and bringing my ideas and vision to life. it was an honor to wear this dress knowing that going forward oscar de la renta will be completely fur-free," the singer said in an Instagram post where she shared her multiple snaps.
"I am beyond thrilled that @fernandogarciam1205 and @tokibunbun and the entire team heard me on this issue, and have now made a change that makes an impact for the greater good, not only for animals but also for our planet and environment too. i’m honored to have been a catalyst and to have been heard on this matter. i urge all designers to do the same."
Billie Eilish wore an Oscar de la Renta gown to the Met Gala on Monday night. She termed her experience as 'unforgettable.'
After his conversation with Billie Eilish, the brand's CEO, Alex Bolen, made the decision to stop selling fur as the singer conveyed her clear-cut decision that she would not work with fur designers, according to The New York Times.
“I have to surround myself with people with different points of view,” he stressed.
The same requests were made by other people, including his wife and widow of Oscar de la Renta, but, Bolen had refused to call it quits with fur in his collections.
According to The Hill, other luxury labels such as Gucci, Versace, and Prada have also discontinued the use of fur in their designs.
