Fashion designer Victoria Beckham is in trouble with animal rights groups. The Spice Girl was spotted carrying a £16,000 Hermes Birkin Bag made from crocodile skin.

Victoria Beckham had previously said that her beauty line was “cruelty free.” She also announced in February, 2019 that her clothing line would eliminate exotic animal skins from collections. The brand has been fur-free since its inception.

A spokesperson for the brand made the announcement, saying, “Victoria Beckham will cease the use of exotic skins in all collections as of AW19. The Victoria Beckham brand has never used fur in its clothing or accessories collections and confirmed last year that the brand will remain fur free.”

PETA Director Elisa Allen told the MailOnline, “Victoria has taken a vital first step by ridding her brand of exotic skins, and we bet this decision will soon be reflected in her personal wardrobe choices, too, as fake snake and mock croc beat the corpse couture of yesteryear, vintage or not. So many designers, including fellow British style icons Stella McCartney and Vivienne Westwood, create killer clothes that no one has to die for, and Victoria is heading in that direction.” Stella McCartney created faux fur for her Spring 2020 collection.

Fur and exotic skins have no use in fashion collections or as accessories being worn by designers. The fashion industry is notoriously cruel toward animals. Animals are kept in cages, treated inhumanely and exploited for fashion. The exotic animal skin trade punishes animals and treats them terribly to make fancy handbags.
