So SF lovers, lets talk about vegan friendly products. This is a type of lifestyle, it generally started out as a healthy eating regime is now having a knock-on effect on fashion trends and the way fashion is approached by many celebrities and top fashion designers. With important personalities becoming more and more involved in the production of animal friendly clothing, footwear and accessories!
Vegan leather for example, is made in the same way as many other fashion essentials. Depending on the way it is created, it can be practically undistinguishable from real leather. So pro vegan-friendly shoppers are baffled as to why it is people still choose real leather? Does it bother you if your bag comes from an animal or if its fabricated in a way that could potentially be kinder to our environment? Having said this, many argue that the way these environmentally friendly products are created aren’t so environmentally friendly after all…
Big names like Natalie Portman, Stella McCartney and Suzy Amis Cameron are just a few big supporters of this movement, having each shown the public different ways of approaching fashion: Natalie Portman has started her own range of non-leather shoes, Stella McCartney has designed her new range with animal friendly products, and Suzy Cameron created “Red Carpet, Green Dress‘ encouraging stars on the red carpet to wear sustainable fashion gowns. These are just a few names in the business that are trying to make a change!

We believe that it is up to the individual to decide what and how they wear it, but if you can wear something that has been created in a less harmful way and look as cool as ever, how cool is that?
