Designer John Bartlett Receives National Animal Welfare Award
Fashion designer’s brand recognized for its commitment to advancing fur-free fashion
John Bartlett, Inc. received the Henry Spira Humane Corporate Progress Award from The Humane Society of the United States. The John Bartlett brand earned the award for its celebration of fur-free fashion and dedication to raising awareness about the inherent cruelty of an industry killing more than 75 million animals per year for fashion. Bartlett’s love for his three-legged rescue dog, Tiny Tim, led to the creation of the “The Tiny Tim Rescue Fund,” which helps support independent rescue groups across the country. In 2012, Bartlett made fashion week history with the debut of his 100 percent cruelty-free menswear collection.
PJ Smith, corporate outreach manager for The HSUS, said: “John Bartlett continues to lead the way in furthering the fur-free message in the fashion world. From working with local animal shelters to speaking to other fashion designers about the cruel fur trade, Bartlett’s passion for animals knows no bounds.”
