A multi-brand vegan showroom opened this month in downtown Los Angeles. It is called the Vegan Fashion Library, and the new industrialist loft filled with vegan designer clothes, accessories, shoes!
In short, it is a utopian world for the vegan fashionistas!
This fancy stuff is made from innovative and standard material such as cactus, pineapple leather, plant-based wool, vegan silk, apple, and so much more.
The concept is a pivot for this grand annual event Vegan Fashion Week, which had to postpone in-person events due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.
Founder of vegan fashion week Emmanuelle Rienda developed a timely and classic concept for Vegan Fashion Library from an urgent need to promote animal-free fashion in the light of the outbreak of the pandemic. The pandemic outbreak has been identified on the mink fur farms in various countries, including the US, Spain and the Netherlands.
Rienda said, “Fashion is the semiotic representation of our political and social climate, and Vegan Fashion Week is the voice leading the charge for change in the fashion industry.
Further, she added, “We are leading a positive change through conscious creativity. Let’s take this opportunity to think about the cause of the pandemic, see beyond social distancing to create new awareness and change behaviour. We need to rethink the way we consume, what we consume, and how to sync sustainability with ethics.”
The showroom availability is only by appointment, and only professional photo shoots are allowed.
Ordinary people are not allowed to visit yet, but the professional photographers, award shows and film set wardrobes are permitted to stay with permission.
Rienda also launched an online vegan boutique where shoppers can find the curated selection of items made by the ethical designers such as Julien Esteves Bertheire, Sylvan New York, Bohemia, Enda, Benedetti Life and Sylth Virago.
