Los Angeles – The all-vegan fashion house Vaute—founded by fashion star Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart—is popping up in Los Angeles for the first time this Saturday, and PETA is partnering with Vaute for the grand opening with a round of promotions calling all animal-friendly fashionistas. Through October 21, local visitors can dive into animal-free luxury and style, while opening-weekend shoppers will get the jump on 30 percent sale prices on brand-new pieces. I thought your readers might be interested in getting the inside scoop on this exciting, limited event. Vaute—the first all-vegan label to show at New York Fashion Week—will also contribute 10 percent of its opening-weekend proceeds to PETA’s lifesaving work for animals.

Where:           Vaute Couture Pop-Up Shop, 1306 Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice, CA 90291

When:             Saturday, August 29, 1–7 p.m. and Sunday, August 30, 11 a.m.–7 p.m.

“Animal-free fashion is soaring across the globe, and Vaute is helping to put it in the hands of even more savvy customers,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA encourages local style aficionados eager for a taste of luxury minus the cruelty of skins and fur to pay Vaute a visit during this limited event.”

A host of pre-fall items will debut in West Coast–friendly styles, including jumpsuits, A-line skirts, dresses, and boxy tops. Vaute’s space will also feature rotating wall murals—the first a bold anti-SeaWorld image by local artist CHASE.

“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
