Yes, you heard right! There’s a vegan fashion week and it’s happening tomorrow in Los Angeles. Well, it’s actually vegan fashion couple of days, but we’re still thrilled. The special event will take place for the 3rd time and will include a curated lineup of international designers, panel talks, film screenings and networking events.
The goal of vegan fashion week is to bring forward social justice and environmental issues related to the fashion industry, and to show that fashion can also be sustainable and ethical. More and more big fashion brands (Gucci, Chanel, Prada, Oscar de la Renta, Versace and Burberry, among others) have declared recently that they will no longer be using fur, and leather is now being made from things like apples, cacti, wine grapes, pineapples and mushrooms, so it’s no surprise that vegan fashion week is a thing!
This year will include genderless label Nous Etudions, South Korean animal-free brand Vegan Tiger, edgy apparel and accessories brand Fan All Flames, and unisex streetwear label Pure Void. We really wish we could go!
