Wear your values
Veganism is on the rise in Britain; according to the Vegan Society, the number of vegans has shot up from around 150,000 ten years ago to at least 542,000 in 2017.
While a large focus of the vegan trend has been on plant-based food, increasingly we are seeing vegan fashion come to the fore as more people aim to wear, as well as eat, their vegan and ethical values.
Brands confirmed to show at the Vegan Edit space include:
Po-Zu – take a look at this ethical footwear company’s gorgeous new vegan sneaker collection, ethically made in Sri Lanka. Po-Zu’s classic sandals, shoes and heels, made with organic cotton, cork and pineapple leaf fibre, will also be on show.

At 11.00 on Saturday morning, Po-Zu will host a panel discussion, chaired by Safia Minney, MBE, with ethical fashion pioneers including founder Mark Bloom from Komodo, Zoe Partridge from Wear the Walk and vegan changemaker Damian Clarkson, co-founder of Vevolution.
