Peta UK recently hosted the first ever UK vegan fashion awards, which followed hot on the heels of London Fashion Week 2014.
To celebrate this, and a growing rise in vegan fashion, we take a look at some great vegan fashion names for you to keep a lookout for.
Beyond Skin – Vegan Shoes
Beyond Skin was founded in 2001 in London and after an uneasy first few years has really started to thrive.
Their website mentions Natalie Portman as a customer, who happens to have worn their vegan shoes to the Oscars, Golden Globes and film premieres.
Over time, Beyond Skin has built up a huge range and variety of shoes at a reasonable price and will also be bringing out a men’s shoe collection in the near future.
Definitely looks like one to watch out for.
Feel Good Handbags – Vegan Handbags
Feel Good Handbags began in 2008, as the founders became increasingly frustrated with a lack of suitable leather alternatives in the vegan handbag market.
In 6 short years the company has expanded its handbag line up and is also looking to add future products and collections to its offering.
All of their handbags are 100% animal-friendly and one of their main principles is to raise awareness of animal treatment.
CutECOsmetics – Vegan Makeup
Cute Cosmetics is an online vegan, organic makeup specialist.
They are a family run, independent business who keep up to date with the latest trends and style while at the same time keeping true to their cruelty-free ethos.
You can shop by brand, shop by product or even shop by ethic – which is split into organic and vegan.
Ethical Wares – Vegan Accessories
Ethical Wares is an online supplier of vegan footwear and lifestyle accessories. They began trading in 1993 so are now 21 years old. From humble beginnings of just 2 types of shoe, they now offer over 500 cruelty-free, vegan-friendly products.
What’s even more is that all profits from sales on their site go towards funding the care of the large range of animals living with the owners and founders. So not only are Ethical Wares encouraging the vegan lifestyle, they fully lie and embrace it as well!
