In October, Gucci President and CEO Marco Bizzarri announced at the annual Kering Talk that the Italian house led by Alessandro Michele was taking a stand against animal fur; in fact, the brand had already gone fur-free for its Spring 2018 collection, shown a month prior. And while Gucci certainly wasn't the first major fashion institution to ban the long-controversial practice, it did kickstart a movement that has seen many of Michele's contemporaries following suit and making fur-free commitments of their own. 

These recent developments, along with the labels that have been fur-free for years and years (looking at you, Stella McCartney), as well as the varying policies of retailers and magazines, can understandably get confusing — especially for consumers looking to vote with their dollar, so to speak, by supporting companies that support animal rights. As the fair and ethical treatment of animals becomes more and more of priority for brands and shoppers alike, we've compiled the following running list: a comprehensive guide to every single fashion house, retailer and magazine that has ditched fur, which we'll update each time a new brand goes fur-free.
