Los Angeles to host first Vegan Fashion Week
today Jan 9, 2019
Los Angeles will play host to the first ever Vegan Fashion Week, produced and curated by creative director and animal rights advocate Emmanuelle Rienda.
The event, which will take place over four days from February 1 through February 4, is meant to "empower conscious brands" and serve as "an ode to the end of animal exploitation in all forms," according to the event's website.
The event's invitation-only launch will take place inside the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles.
For the duration of the vegan fashion event, attendees will have the opportunity to travel through LA's fashion district and explore Vegan World at the California Market Center, which will feature a range of animal-free designer pieces shown on the runway, as well as a vegan lounge offering cruelty-free fashion, beauty, food and other vegan goods.
“I want to ignite conversations and debates within the industry by educating, elevating, and drawing connections between our most important values: our respect for human life, animal rights, and the environment,” Rienda said to VegNews.
According to Vogue, a list of featured designers will be released on January 21.
