Is Vegan Fashion really sustainable?
You hear words like ethical fashion versus fast fashion, fair trade fashion, sustainable fashion but when you buy vegan clothing, how do you know if you buy a sustainable item?
With this workshop we will discover the vegan alternatives to animal-based materials used in the apparel industry and how can we identify whether they are sustainable and ethical.
Why Vegan Fashion?
Many people today still believe that skin and fur are “by-product” materials of the meat industry.
According to International Fur Trade Federation, 85% of fur skin came from factory farming. More than a billion animals are killed for its skin every year and processed into raw materials overseas.
Choosing vegan fashion is a positive step towards protecting the fundamental rights of animals, workers and conserving planet.
As a professional I am at the forefront of the socially conscious fashion and a keen supporter of the brands that respect our planet as well as the people and the animals.
Vegan Fashion is a term that describes garments made from materials that are not tested on animals or made from leather, silk, down, wool, fur, beeswax, pearls or derived in part from animals.
With increasing concern about global warming, fair trade, working conditions, child labour and animal welfare there has never been a better time to learn more about the creation of our clothing.
