Judge Sadie Frost Picks the Hottest Vegan Trends for PETA’s New Fashion Awards!
Celebrity designer Sadie Frost knows that vegan fashion has never been more en vogue. As judge of PETA’s first-ever Vegan Fashion Awards – along with fellow fashionista Meg Mathews – she got to check out the fantastic range of stylish animal-friendly clothes and accessories available today, from men’s shoes to ladies’ handbags.
From the catwalk to the high street, clothes produced without harming animals are everywhere, and the trend is here to stay – great news for animals and for conscientious consumers, who no longer have to go to great lengths to source their cruelty-free outfits. Here’s why Sadie chose to get involved:
My two greatest passions are fashion and helping animals, so I was thrilled when PETA asked me to help judge their fashion awards. It’s phenomenal how many retailers and top designers are using pleather, micro-suede and faux cashmere in their collections, and the quality is amazing. The new fabrics are kinder not only to animals but also to the environment. So with ethical consumerism on the rise – and its increasing importance to young people – retailers need to respond by using compassionately produced materials if they don’t want to be left behind.
The winners of this year’s awards show just how easy (and affordable) it is to dress well while keeping cruelty out of your wardrobe. So check out the winners page, then make the decision to clothe yourself in compassion this – and every – season: take our pledge to go leather-free.
