PETA Fashion Awards Celebrates Cruelty-Free Style

The third annual vegan awards highlight a wide array of designers and clothing.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) UK held the third annual Vegan Fashion Awards to “celebrate the very best animal-free clothing and accessories.” The awards featured both men’s and women’s fashions with categories such as “most stylish down-free item,” “most stylish handbag,” and “most stylish faux leather item.” Winners ranged from the high fashion to the everyday, and featured vegan favorite companies such as Matt and Nat, Vaute Couture, Beyond Skin, Bourgeois Boheme, and Freedom of Animals in addition to more traditional retailers. PETA also presented an innovation award to Ananas Anam, a company creating faux leather from pineapple leaves. “Animal-free fashion is the future, and forward-thinking designers are experimenting with innovative, high-tech materials that are vegan and eco-friendly and offer ethical consumers a vast array of cruelty-free choices—from high-street to high-end,” PETA said. “This year’s winners show just how easy it is to get the look of leather, fur, wool, silk, down, and exotic skins without harming a hair on an animal’s head!”
