A popular nightclub chain known for attracting A-list clientele, from pop stars to princes, recently made an animal-friendly change to its dress code. Mahiki, with locations in London and Dubai, has announced that patrons to both locations will now be turned away at the door if they're wearing fur.
Campaign organizer Meg Mathews says the new ban grew out of what was meant to be a one-time fur-free event hosted by the club, but it was so well-received that Mahiki management decided to make it permanent.
"I love the idea of being able to show how fabulous being fur-free can be. Mahiki is one of the coolest spots in London, so it was my first choice for hosting a night to promote compassion in fashion," Mathews tells the Telegraph.
Less than a week later, the London hotspot's counterpart in Dubai followed suit, enacting a ban on fur at their establishment as well. "Wearing fur involves intolerable cruelty to animals," says Mahiki Brand Director Matt Jolly, to Arabian Business.
