VICTORIA Beckham has caved in to animal rights campaigners and cut exotic skins from her fashion range. The designer—who has sold bags and accessories made from python, ostrich and alligator for up to £18,000 – issued a statement after coming under pressure from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
She also confirmed an earlier commitment not to use real fur in her fashion collections.
A spokesman for the former Spice Girl said: “This decision reflects the wishes of not only the brand, but also that of our customers.”
PETA’s Elisa Allen said: “Victoria Beckham’s decision to ban exotic skins will spare countless remarkable animals immense suffering.”
