Vaute Couture, the premiere vegan high-end fashion line, will have a solo show at New York Fashion Week next Wednesday, February 6. This is a very big deal. Vaute makes vegan ethics a big part of their brand, bringing the message to an industry that is not generally too concerned with such things. Even if you don’t care about fashion, I hope all friends of animals join me in congratulating Vaute’s Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart in landing such a prestigious show. And if you do care about fashion, well…
There’s a few ways you can get on the list to attend the show, including directly from Vaute Couture. (Even if you can’t make it to the show, you should click that link just to enjoy Leanne’s delightful sleep-deprived geeking out over Sailor Moon.) Here’s the details about the show itself:
I’ve had my outerwear & tee line for a few years now, but this past year I’ve been working on research & development of my first full RTW line, including tops, satin dresses, skirts, pants, and sweaters- made from the latest in vegan and eco fabrics some which have never been shown before or used before in production. This includes luxe organic cotton velvet that’s quilted with recycled Thinsulate for colorful whimsical coats with details of metallic vegan leather made of all recycled fibers, printed organic blouses, 100% recycled satin pants, waxed canvas skirts & pants, and more… Including some mens too!
My show is sponsored partially by the amazing Humane Society of the United States, because they work so hard to educate the fashion industry about the cruelties of fur and using animals in fashion. If you haven’t seen their video by Woody Harrelson yet, here it is. Also sponsored by our awesome makeup team doing all vegan makeup from DeVita, & amazing hair will be by Champu Salon in NYC, who uses all vegan products. Cutest sweets designed just for the show in my fav flavors (like matcha & strawberry) are being whipped up by noneother than the grossly talented Danielle Konya and her Vegan Treats team. I LOVE her (is an understatement)… plus music spun by DJ Diggy Lloyd, her cuteness will also stun you.
Oh & adoptable puppies dogs (might) be on site as a few of the models? We’ll see! Sh!
