In 2016, Hilary Macmillan made a commitment to focus on being a cruelty-free brand, no longer using leather, fur, exotic skins, or feathers in any of her garments. For her Spring/ Summer 2019 Hilary Macmillan has phased out all silks and wools to proudly become Canada’s number one choice for cruelty-free womenswear
“Animal rights have been a passion of mine for quite some time and I wanted to transition this into my work. I have been a vegetarian for most of my life and recently decided to become a vegan. This shift has forced me to explore more faux options and discover new fabrications. Whatever small impact I can make for animal rights is a step in the right direction for my brand, my lifestyle, and my love of all living things.” – Hilary MacMillan, Canadian Fashion Designer.
