Ms. Mensa and I needed a little fashion inspiration for some new shirts we are about to design, so we thought where better to go then New York Fashion Week! We choose the Vaute show to start off with, by designer Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart, one because it was the first all vegan fashion label to show in NYFW and two because her stuff is mad cute. That’s what we are talking about people! :] Anyway, all her fashions are made from organic, recycled materials. The photo above is the Moleskin Quilted Emily Coat with Zip Off Hood modeled by Mary Kate from Mix. It’s vegan, eco-conscious, constructed locally in NYC. The fabrics are all recycled, 100% vegan shell lined with recycled satin liner and engraved tagua nut buttons, which is pretty badass. Check out the Vaute site to read more on her ethical, eco clothing line.
The show was sponsored by The Humane Society and Badass Brooklyn Rescue, so in the show were fashionable, adoptable furry friends. The models make-up was all vegan and done by the DeVita team, all vegan hair done by Salon Champu, amazing women’s shoes by designer Monisha Raja of Love is Mighty and the men’s shoes by Joshua Katcher who is righteous as well as fashionable at Brave Gentleman.
Below is the greatest vegan Tiramisu by Vegan Treats. We loved it!
