Leather and fur are so old school; the future of fashion is ethical, sustainable, and sexy.

In keeping with these changing trends, the world recently saw its first-ever completely vegan Fashion Week in Los Angeles, with Vegan Club as a headliner. 
Hundreds of people flocked to see (and buy) the hottest in stunning, cruelty-free threads from more than 50 labels.

Designers and brands showcasing their styles included Vegan Club, New Rock, Mink Shoes (a favorite of Miley Cyrus), Mistohn, Sarah Regensburger, Chloe Trujillo, WastedLA, Arsayo, and more. The showroom included a powerful installation by artist Le Fou, founder of Vegan Club, in collaboration with @humanetrafficking.

Celebs like the musician and long-time activist Moby, and actresses Mena Suvari and Harley Quinn Smith (daughter of Kevin Smith) were in attendance.

"With this event, we’re showing the world that vegan fashion is not just equally good but even better," says Le Fou, whose Vegan Club apparel was a hot seller in the showroom, and featured collaborations with @marykolende, @_actions_not_words, @bjwanderlust, and @praxis_vgz.
