In an interview on Wednesday with The Economist’s 1843magazine, the designer announced that she will no longer include fur in any of her future designs for Versace.
“Fur? I am out of that. I don’t want to kill animals to make fashion. It doesn’t feel right.”
The fashion house has yet to put out an official statement or pull any fur products, including the $1,450 rabbit fur pillow still found on the brand’s website.

Donatella was also asked about the rumors in which the fashion house is searching for a new creative director.
Donatella did not confirm or deny it but noted that the house is embracing the changing times in every way.
“Somebody came up to me recently and said, ‘there will be a huge crisis if you leave – it will be a fashion disaster!’ Can you believe that?”
“Yes I am Versace. But also Versace needs to mean change. And it needs to be an opportunity for others to express themselves.”
