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.”

    Born and bred in Britain. I've always lived with animals and loved finding out new information/ caring about them. I currently do eat meat although I am not a huge lover and I do intend on going vegetarian when I'm older. I've always wanted to support charities and I am the head fund raiser at my school. I am looking forward to supporting Peta and becoming a member of their Street Team!
