I’ve got some amazing news for all you veganistas out there. Free People, the ultimate boho-chic, girly-yet-edge-y clothing line (and one of my personal faves), has just introduced an entire collection of something I can’t get enough of … vegan leather. [Insert happy dance here!]
As a fan of both cruelty-free fashion and Free People, this announcement was as exciting as finding out one of your fave celebs has gone veg, or when you discover a vegan version of something you used to love eating. Discovering that someone (or some brand) you love also loves animals is pretty much the best feeling ever, am I right?
Their compassionate collection makes sense seeing as how a lot of their designers are also vegetarian. After all, loving animals means not eating OR wearing them. Using vegan leather also reduces their carbon footprint so double kudos to them! Take a peek at their vegan leather-licious clothes and hear what the designers have to say about cruelty-free fashion and vegetarianism:
Not gonna lie, I’m probably gonna have to get myself that jacket. Which vegan leather piece are you lovin’?
Well, I love Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, CSI, Criminal Minds, Doctor Who and comic books (I mean, my profile pic IS Damian Wayne and Bat-Cow...). I'm kind of spazzy and I tend to ramble... I'm also an obsessive perfectionist...heh heh...a science/tech nerd and a vegetarian.
