I’m here today with another vegan look, this time with photography taken by the super talented Simon Way and some vegan clothes I want to talk about.
As you may already know, I’m an advocate for vegan fashion. I love finding clothes that are only free from animal derived products, and that is my main objective with this blog. However, as with any vegan around here, I’m sure you’ve come across the argument of sustainability and eco-consciousness when you purchase new clothing. I must admit that I do not know much about the topic, but I certainly am looking into more sustainable fashion brands and clothing that are that bit nicer to our planet.
People Tree is one of them. People Tree is the leading eco-fashion brand in the UK, offering modern and stylish garments made with respect for the environment and their workers. I am a huge fan of Safia Minney, who I discovered after watching the documentary “The True Cost”, available on Netflix. Not only has she empowered women and is a well-respected environmentalist, the woman learned how to speak Japanese in Tokyo and is super fluent! Very very impressed.
I am wearing their Dalmatian print top called Joelle. I must say I was a bit skeptical about it at first, but when I saw how cool it looks with this outfit, I was totally blown away! It’s made of 100% organic cotton, and knowing it’s Fair Trade and sustainable makes it all the better.
I paired it with a vegan coat from Great Plains, who happens to be Laura’s (the founder of Votch, in case you didn’t know already!) but I would have loved to keep it! It’s a London brand that focuses on atemporal, and good quality clothing keeping design and comfort in mind. I had my white trousers from Zara that I purchased three years ago to go along with the look.
For the shoes, I’m wearing my vegan and sustainable shoes from Bourgeois Boheme, a brand that I love and have spoken about several times in this blog (like here and here). I met the founder Alicia Lai and social media manager Sophie at their Piñatex Lounge in London in April, and saw them again at an event hosted by Vevolution in Shoreditch as well (click here to see the video). Needless to say that they are super kind, lovely, and are seriously passionate about their jobs!
And can you spot two lovely Votch watches here? As a new brand ambassador for this vegan and award-winning company of vegan watches, I pride myself in showing you how gorgeous vegan watches can be. The new collection has been online for two weeks and I invite you all to check them out whether you like cruelty-free fashion or not!
I love this outfit so much, tell me what you think in the comments below, I’d love to know your opinion!
