Overstock.com has gone fur-free. Overstock.com stopped selling merchandise containing fur on its e-commerce Web site on Thursday. According to an announcement by Overstock.com chairman and chief executive officer Patrick Byrne and Wayne Pacelle, president and ceo of the Humane Society of the U.S., the decision was made in reaction to continued problems with mislabeled fur garments. Byrne said the decision to halt the sale of fur would cost the company “more than $1 million and less than $5 million” in the next year. The statement said the attraction of socially conscious consumers to the site should make up for some of the lost sales. Overstock.com will continue to sell faux fur.
Alberta Ferretti's "Rainbow Week" sweaters are back. The designer closed her #MFW show with a few day-of-the-week sweaters, which first debuted on the catwalk last January as part of the pre-fall 2017 collection. #wwdfashion (📷: @delphineachard)
