The announcement was met with praise from high-profile campaign groups, including Humane Society International UK, whose executive director, Claire Bass, said the retailer was setting a precedence.
Other big-name fashion brands, including Tommy Hilfiger, Armani and Calvin Klein among others, have made the same pledge, with Stella McCartney - a Net-A-Porter favourite - being one of the most prominent and vocal advocates of cutting out animal by-product completely from her manufacturing and designs.
Yoox Net-A-Porter Group is an online fashion retailer created on 5 October 2016 after the merger between Yoox Group and The Net-A-Porter Group. ■
