London Nightclub Mahiki Bans Fur
The royals' favourite nightspot has become the first to ban patrons wearing fur
The nightclub Mahiki has previously made headlines for being the favoured hangout of royals and celebrities, with Kate Middleton, Prince Harry and Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie spotted there in recent years. Now they’ve become the first club to ban fur, bearing a neon PETA-sponsored sign that has the word ‘fur’ with a slash through it. Nightclub staff will be trained by anti-fur campaigner (also socialite and jewellery designer) Meg Mathews in how to differentiate real from faux fur.
Meg hosted an evening at the club to kick off the campaign. "I love the idea of being able to show how fabulous being fur-free can be,” she said. “Mahiki is one of the coolest spots in London, so it was my first choice for hosting a night to promote compassion in fashion.”
