Compassion in fashion
In a vegan society, the fashion industry, like all other industries, would be animal-free. With gorgeous alternatives to leather, suede, fur, wool, pearls, and silk readily available at a great price, it’s time for vegans to lead the way in a new trend.
Out with the old...
...and in with the new! The days of ugly vegan sandals are long gone, so you don’t even need to think twice about swapping your old shoes for shiny new vegan ones. If you're a keen fashionista, veganism should be right up your street. There are plenty of options, whether you're looking for winter boots, comfortable yet smart shoes, or stilettos with heels so high they should only be worn in taxis. And you don't have to go to specialist shops: there are leather-free shoes available in most shoe outlets. Just to check that the shoes or their packaging do not contain a leathermark.
Make the call
More and more vegan clothing retailers are popping up online, while existing retailers are offering up vegan alternatives to gothic leather jackets, walking boots and more. If you’re wondering whether your favourite designer or retail store has a vegan range, why not call up and ask? The more we demonstrate demand, the more likely it is companies will provide us with increased vegan options.
