Vegan Fashion Week? Okay, this doesn't actually exist but with my second post in a week on cruelty free fashion it might as well.
One of our team member trainers emailed me a link to a site that sells, you guessed it, vegan fashion. The site is called Vaute Couture. The name hooked me in and I was eager to see what animal friendly finds this site offered.
I was not disapointed. I know winter is coming to a (very slow) end, but it is still pretty cold up here in Chicago. So the coats are still relevant... at least a little while longer. But the best part is they are all on sale. Vegan sales for everyone!
Pretty sweet coats right?
Well the website was created by model with a soft side for animals. From the website:
Our Founder, Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart, has been advocating for animals since she was 8, and while modeling in Hong Kong during her MBA summer break, realized that there still was no option for a outerwear that was at once flattering, warm, and cruelty free. She spent her life savings and a year developing the first line of winter dress coats that is more protective than wool but animal free by combining high tech weatherproof performance fabrics with dress coat textures and structures, thus creating the best winter coat you’ve never had: weatherproof & stunning at once. The line is also made of recyclable and recycled fibers, and produced locally in NYC’s garment district.
So I urge you to check them out and shop your little vegan heart out!
