Fashion designer and animal rights activist Stella McCartney made quite a statement at Paris Fashion Week. McCartney sent a trove of models dressed in animal costumes down the runway.

Models dressed as cows, a rabbit, fox, horses, and a crocodile walked the catwalk during the finale alongside the show’s main designs, according to Stylist. McCartney’s cheeky nod towards animals at her show highlighted the designer’s lack of animal skins, fur and leather in her collection.

McCartney teased animal rights as a show theme on Instagram prior to the show. She posted a series of cartoon animals alongside thought bubbles. A fox alongside ” my coat looks better on me” or a snake with “skinning is not winning.” One read “No leather, feather or fur since 2001.” McCartney’s label has been vegan since its inception.

McCartney’s autumn/winter 2020 collection featured lots of vegan leather, with lots of PVC clothes and accessories alongside faux-leather handbags. McCartney is an outspoken animal rights activist and her commitment to sustainability is apparent in her shows. Joaquin Phoenix wore the same Stella McCartney tux the entire 2020 awards season as a nod to sustainability.
