Activists have held a demonstration outside Hermès’ flagship store in central London to protest against the fashion brand’s use of ostrich leather to make handbags.
Jackie Joyce, 29, led the protest, during which she stood topless with a mock dead ostrich draped across her chest. She was joined by fellow activists Anna Buraya and Charly Keats holding handbag-shaped placards reading “Hermès: Bin ostrich skin”.
