New York Fashion Week may be over, but style is always in season—and last night, I got the chance to preview the brand-new Vaute Couture store opening this week in Brooklyn, New York. As one of the leading cruelty-free fashion lines, Vaute Couture and creator Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart have been featured in Teen Vogue and the Los Angeles Times and on, just to name a few places, for their cute and compassionate clothing and accessories.

The opening was a total success, complete with fancy cocktails and vegan treats, including Sweet & Sara‘s famous Mini Smores and Rice Crispy Treats, empanadas from The V-Spot, and chocolates from Lagusta’s Luscious. Of course, the fashion was the real treat. Guests were invited to a sneak peek of Leanne’s newest line of winter wear, eco-friendly tees and tanks, accessories, and more. As Vaute Couture’s motto states, “Be lovely inside then out.”

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
