Peta protesters target London Fashion Week

Supporters of the animal welfare organisation Peta have demonstrated outside Somerset House in central London, protesting against the killing of animals to make shoes and bags, at London Fashion Week. It comes as the charity claims that conservation experts warn that the trade in exotic skins risks fuelling the spread of diseases like Covid-19. British brands such as Mulberry, Victoria Beckham, and Vivienne Westwood are all free from exotic skins, while a few labels, such as Burberry, continue to use them.
