At only 19 years of age, Billie Eilish an affects the world of fashion. The “Happier Than Ever” singer has been known for her unique fashion sense since the start of her career and caused ripple effects with her Oscar de la Renta-designed gander at the Met Gala on Monday night.
Nonetheless, before she consented to wear the organization’s plan – a critical choice for any Met Gala participant – she had one significant condition: They quit selling fur.
As per the New York Times, Eilish, a notable basic entitlements lobbyist and a long time long veggie lover, demanded that the significant style house quit offering the material to consent to team up with them.
The fashioner had gradually started the most common way of eliminating fur, not utilizing it in runway shows for quite a while on the grounds that they observed it to be insignificant, as per the Times, yet at the same time sold the material in stores in view of a “meaningful amount of sales and profit,” CEO Alex Bolen told the outlet.
Be that as it may, the singer’s request started their decision to stop selling such pieces.
“I thought a lot about what [late founding designer] Oscar [de la Renta] said — he was a big fan of fur, by the way — that the one thing he really worried about in the fashion business was his eye getting old,” Bolen said. “I have to surround myself with people with different points of view.”
Eilish spouted over her outfit and Oscar de la Renta’s decision in an Instagram post after the ritzy occasion.
“Thank you @oscardelarenta for designing this BEAUTIFUL dress and bringing my ideas and vision to life. it was an honor to wear this dress knowing that going forward oscar de la renta will be completely fur-free!!!!” she wrote.
“I am beyond thrilled that @fernandogarciam1205 and @tokibunbun and the entire team heard me on this issue, and have now made a change that makes an impact for the greater good, not only for animals but also for our planet and environment too,” she continued. “I’m honored to have been a catalyst and to have been heard on this matter. i urge all designers to do the same.”
Eilish said during the occasion’s online live stream that her look was enlivened by her #1 occasion themed Barbies from growing up, while a video exhibiting her joint effort with the architects added that she got photographs of exemplary Hollywood symbols like Marilyn Monroe as motivation.
