Vegan leather, faux fur and mock croc are just some of the options available to fashionistas who want style without cruelty.
As style-savvy shoppers learn how easy it is to find fabrics, clothes and accessories that are kind to animals, more and more top designers and high-street retailers are meeting the demand for top-quality vegan fashion.
‘Animal-free fashion is the future’
The very best animal-free clothing and accessories have been
recognised by PETA’s third annual Vegan Fashion Awards, with Vivienne Westwood (Most Stylish Handbag), Stella McCartney (Most Stylish Women’s Wallet), Calvin Klein Jeans (Most Stylish Men’s Knitwear), Shrimps (Most Stylish Women’s Coat), Simone Rocha (Most Stylish Evening Bag) and Dr Martens (Most Stylish Men’s Boots) among the list of winners.
‘These are exciting times as compassionate consumers change the face of fashion. Animal-free fashion is the future.
‘Forward-thinking designers are experimenting with innovative, high-tech materials that are vegan and, therefore, more eco-
friendly and offering ethical consumers a vast array of cruelty-free choices – from high-street to high-end.’
Yvonne Taylor, PETA
