Los Angeles – Brooklyn’s Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart of VAUTE—the first all-vegan line to debut at New York Fashion Week—is well known for her commitment to helping animals through high-end fashion, and VAUTE has been listed as one of Business Insider‘s 25 most innovative businesses in New York City. And starting today, shoppers can get a hot new back-to-school look and go even further to help animals, thanks to VAUTE’s online “PETA Week,” during which a percentage of all proceeds at checkout will be donated to PETA when shoppers use PETA codes. Shoppers can use the code “PETAPreorder” to get an additional 15 percent off all VAUTE pre-order vegan winter coats, code “PETA20off” for an extra 20 percent off almost sold-out styles, or code “PETALove” for 10 percent off all screen-printed tops.

At the center of PETA Week is a September 2014 special-edition “I Am an Animal” T-shirt—which was created by Hilgart in honor of PETA and its president and co-founder, Ingrid Newkirk, and named in honor of the HBO documentary about Newkirk’s work. The organic cotton, sustainably printed unisex T-shirts are available in black and white and will also be available for purchase in black through the PETA Catalog as long as supplies last.

During PETA Week, visitors to VauteCouture.com can also stock up on dresses, hats, sweaters, tanks, and, of course, VAUTE’s signature warm, stylish, and 100 percent vegan coats, which use cutting-edge fabric technology in place of wool, leather, fur, and other materials that cause animal suffering.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
