Modelling and talent agency, Linden Staub is officially going fur-free, co-founders Esther Kinnear-Derungs and Tara Le Roux announced this morning. 

The decision marks a major move, with Linden Staub being the first agency to join the conversation by stating they will not provide models for photo shoots and fashion shows where their signed models wear fur.

“We support a more sustainable approach within the fashion industry by becoming fur-free. With so many prestigious brands supporting this movement, we feel that it is a natural move as a supplier of talent to stand alongside them in this vision”, said Esther Kinnear-Derungs and Tara Le Roux.

Under the new policy, Linden Staub will no longer book their talent on jobs in which they individually model real fur. As of April 2018, a Linden Staub model will never again be photographed wearing real fur, or walking in a show wearing real fur for a professional engagement.  

“Hats off to Linden Staub for keeping the fur industry off its books. Given that animal suffering has been exposed time and time again on fur farms around the world – and that innovative, luxurious, cruelty-free fabrics are widely available – there's no excuse for designing with, buying, or modelling fur. We commend the agency on taking a stand against this gruesome trade and on sending a clear message that fur has no place in today's fashion industry”, said Director of PETA, Elisa Allen. 

The agency’s fur-free policy will include mink, coyote, raccoon dog, fox, rabbit, and karakul (otherwise known as astrakhan) and all others species specially bred or caught for fur.

The company joins many other leading fashion brands and retailers in going fur-free - including Versace, Furla, Gucci, Armani, HUGO BOSS, Yoox Net-a-Porter and more.


A company created by females for females, Linden Staub is a UK-based modelling and talent agency that focuses on celebrating and empowering women. Aiming to bring honesty and integrity back into a ‘disturbed’ fashion industry, Linden Staub challenges convention by pursuing a unique business model of acting as a mother agency to a select and hand-picked group of girls. This enables them to give a fully dedicated and personal management to all of their models.

Founded in March 2016, the agency operates on an ethos of transparency and honesty, ensuring that all girls maintain the best career they can, both inside and out of modelling, supporting them every step of the way.

To date, the agency boasts an impressive roster of models on their books, which include Brogan Loftus, Dasha Denisenko, Pia Priewe, Paige Stevens and transgender model and LGBTQ+ advocate and activist, Maxim Magnus.
