PETA’s Vegan Runway Show Proved Saving Animals is Always in Style

Published by Emmie Michaud.

On Tuesday, actor Daniella Monet hosted a special panel discussion at the PETA Empathy Center titled “How to Make It in (Vegan) Fashion.” In front of an audience of editors, fashion students, and other industry influencers, six women with successful vegan fashion lines discussed how to make it as a sustainable designer, where to find high-quality vegan textiles, and why cruelty-free apparel is an unstoppable trend in today’s industry.

The runway show also showcased some of the vegan leather, alternative down, and wool-free designs created with sustainable fabrics by panelists Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart of Vaute, Meg and Komie Vora of Delikate Rayne, Bianca Moran of SUSI Studio, Stephanie Nicora of NICORA, and Morgan Bogle of Freedom of Animals.

Today’s shoppers demand kind, eco-friendly fashion—and that means designs free of leather, down, wool, and other animal-derived materials. That’s why we showcased some of the best designers who are leading the way by using sustainable vegan fabrics.
