New York – Please see the following statement from PETA Senior Vice President Dan Mathews, who met with Michael Kors CEO John D. Idol today in his midtown Manhattan office:

After meeting with PETA officials today, Michael Kors is announcing that it’s going fur-free. The new policy will cover both the luxury fashion company and its recently acquired Jimmy Choo line. This is a wonderful holiday gift for fur-bearing animals. We’re pleased that the company is evolving away from using fur and look forward to working with it on other issues in the future. The announcement follows many years of protests at Michael Kors fashion shows and boutiques by PETA and other animal rights groups.
