Nashville taste maker Chancellor Warhol is forging his own path as a fashion forward designer and up-and-coming hip hop artist. Channeling inspiration from a diverse list of artists, including Daft Punk, The Black Keys, and Pharrell, Warhol quickly caught the eye of industry insiders, by opening for fellow “next big thing” artists Yelawolf and Kid Cudi, and winning over crowds at Bonnaroo and Austin City Limits.

After hearing Warhol spouting about his “vegan habits” on his current single, “I’m On,” featuring fellow Nashville artist Drupy, we had to dig around for further intel. Turns out Warhol initially adopted a vegetarian diet for the irrefutable health benefits, and stuck with it upon learning the truth about the horrors of factory farming.

Saying of his diet, “When I first dove into it I was thinking more health than the concept of harming animals, but after a while I became more conscious of other beings and realized I did not want to consume animals. I also watched Food, Inc. and Earthlings, which changed my mindset completely.” Since becoming vegetarian, Warhol says, “It’s been great for my health. My energy is increased which is great for my lifestyle as a musician and fashion designer.” Some of Warhol’s fave dishes include vegan pizza, and of his blossoming cooking skills, he told peta2, “I recently bought a vegan cookbook and look to try some new recipes as soon as I can.” If he’s lacking inspiration, I’m sure we can send a few ideas his way. 😉

    My cruelty free clothing inspiration is my love for animals and not wanting to wear what I love.

    We could solve world hunger if all the land used to grow grains to feed animals was gran to feed humans.

    what inspires me to be cruelty free is my goal to live in a way that doesn’t cause hurt or fear in any living being. besides, there are so many great cruelty free options – there’s no NEED to!

    Colaboration of nature and beauty with truth and personality inspires my fashion. We don’t have to use animals to seemingly make ourselves look better.

    I have companion pigs and goats. I just think that I would never want to hurt them, or any part of nature. I’m inspired to be animal and eco friendly.

    My cruelty-free fashion is mostly inspired by simplicity. I love my basic v-necks and jeans/shorts.

    my cruelty free fashion is inspired byy my love of music and skiiinnnah jeans,yo! Plus fur and leather is grroos (likeduh) seriously, if the world saw a video on how that stuff is made, from start(being put in a cage or w.e) tothe end. I dont think anybody would wear it. Or the ppl that still did would be considered heartless, yo. Unless ur an eskimo in the polar north of canada, and that all u haave and u live off the land. Idk still debating on that one if its still wrong or not if thats all u have. :/

    My love of animals and my desire for change in the world. I think the best way to change the world is through art forms because that is what truly inspires people. <3

    I like to refer to my fashion sense as bipolar 😉 I get inspired by seeing what people wore a long time ago and how basically all trends are either from the past or from another culture. Nothing new under the sun 😉

    My cruelty fashion inspiration would probably be the fur industries in China. Watching the videos of live skinnings killed me. And finding out that they stole dogs and cats off the streets to use as well and even lying about their use on the clothing labels. Its disgusting and I don’t want to wear anything that once had a face. nuff said.

    Mine is inspired by my mood. Naturally, I am a bright lively person, so that’s what I’ll be wearing!

    I really love when I see celebrities wearing simple cotton. That is usually where I look for fashion trends. If I like it, I wear it.

    I’m inspired by a lot of things: goth, scene, emo, punk, and anime fashion with a stylish edge, cause if I can’t be a rock star, well I can at least dress like one!

    My cruelty-free fashion is inspired by the weather. It changes each day based on rain or sun or whatever.

    The thing that drives me most to dress cruelty-free is the knowledge of how animals are treated. If I can save animals lives and cause them to have no pain or cruelty, I will do whatever I can to wear fake fur/fake leather/fake wool.
