Linden Staub Adopts Fur-Free Policy

Modelling and talent agency Linden Staub is officially going fur-free, co-founders Esther Kinnear-Derungs and Tara Le Roux announced this morning.

The decision marks a major move, with Linden Staub being the first agency to join the conversation by stating they will not provide models for photo shoots and fashion shows where their signed models wear fur.

“We support a more sustainable approach within the fashion industry by becoming fur-free. With so many prestigious brands supporting this movement, we feel that it is a natural move as a supplier of talent to stand alongside them in this vision”, said Esther Kinnear-Derungs and Tara Le Roux.

Under the new policy, Linden Staub will no longer book their talent on jobs in which they individually model real fur. As of April 2018, a Linden Staub model will never again be photographed wearing real fur, or walking in a show wearing real fur for a professional engagement.

“Hats off to Linden Staub for keeping the fur industry off its books. Given that animal suffering has been exposed time and time again on fur farms around the world – and that innovative, luxurious, cruelty-free fabrics are widely available – there’s no excuse for designing with, buying, or modelling fur. We commend the agency on taking a stand against this gruesome trade and on sending a clear message that fur has no place in today’s fashion industry”, said Director of PETA, Elisa Allen.

The agency’s fur-free policy will include mink, coyote, raccoon dog, fox, rabbit, and karakul (otherwise known as astrakhan) and all others species specially bred or caught for fur.

The company joins many other leading fashion brands and retailers in going fur-free – including Versace, Furla, Gucci, Armani, HUGO BOSS, Yoox Net-a-Porter and more.
