The 19-year-old said she is beyond thrilled that creative directors Fernando J. Garcia and Laura Kim, as well as the whole Oscar de la Renta, team heard her on this issue "and have now made a change that makes an impact for the greater good, not only for animals but also for our planet and environment too."
"I'm honored to have been a catalyst and to have been heard on this matter," her post continued. "I urge all designers to do the same."
