A multi-brand vegan showroom opened this month in downtown Los Angeles. We call it the Vegan Fashion Library, and the new industrial loft filled with vegan designer clothes, accessories, shoes!
In short, it's a utopian world for vegan fashionistas!
Garments are made from innovative and standard materials such as cactus, pineapple leather, plant-based wool, vegan silk, apple and more.
The concept is a pivot for this big annual Vegan Fashion Week event, which had to postpone in-person events due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Founder of Vegan Fashion Week, Emmanuelle Rienda developed a timely and classic concept for Vegan Fashion Library out of an urgent need to promote animal-free fashion in light of the pandemic outbreak. The pandemic outbreak has been identified in mink fur farms in various countries, including the United States, Spain and the Netherlands.
Rienda said: “Fashion is the semiotic representation of our political and social climate, and Vegan Fashion Week is the voice of change in the fashion industry.
Further, she added, “We are driving positive change through conscious creativity. Let's take this opportunity to reflect on the cause of the pandemic, to look beyond social distancing to create new awareness and change behaviors. We need to rethink how we consume, what we consume and how to sync sustainability with ethics. »
Showroom availability is by appointment only, and only professional photo shoots are permitted.
Ordinary people are not yet allowed to visit it, but professional photographers, award shows and filming cabinets are allowed to stay with their permission.
Rienda has also launched an online vegan boutique where shoppers can find the selection of items crafted by ethical designers such as Julien Esteves Bertheire, Sylvan New York, Bohemia, Enda, Benedetti Life and Sylth Virago.
