Los Angeles – Komie and Meg Vora, founders of the Los Angeles–based vegan fashion brand Delikate Rayne—whose designs have been embraced by the likes of Kendall Jenner and Rachel Zoe—recently traveled to Mumbai to collaborate with PETA India on the group’s first-ever vegan fashion lookbook, showcasing nearly a dozen stylish outfits, all composed of eco- and animal-friendly materials that stand on their own without fur, leather, wool, or exotic skins.
The lookbook is available here, and a behind-the-scenes video of the photo shoot, featuring interviews with the Vora sisters, is available here.
Modeled by two longtime PETA supporters, Bollywood stars Adah Sharma and Harshvardhan Rane, the looks encompass both Western styles and the vibrant clothing that India is known for. The lookbook features five different looks each for men and women with the following themes: Festival Vibes, Date Night, Dinner With Friends, Club Life, and Athleisure. Numerous top brands are highlighted, including Alexander Wang, Adidas, Tommy Hilfiger, Diesel, Zara, Delikate Rayne itself, and many more.
“This lookbook is a fun way to show consumers how stylish vegan fashion can be,” says PETA Senior Fashion Campaigner Christina Sewell. “With so many innovative animal-friendly fabrics available—including leather made from pineapple leaves and cashmere made from soybeans—there’s no reason to turn animals into fashion victims.”
The Vora sisters are part of a growing group of vegan fashion influencers. More and more designers are using animal-free fabrics—and for good reason. As revealed by PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to wear”—cows, snakes, and other animals killed for leather, skins, or fur are often mutilated and even skinned alive, while impatient wool industry workers have been documented throwing, beating, and stomping on sheep.
