Last week, vegan menswear designer John Bartlett received the American Image Award for Designer of the Year from the American Apparel & Footwear Association. Bartlett recently announced that he had adopted a vegan lifestyle and that henceforth his collections will not include leather. In addition to going leather-free, Bartlett has also announced that he will be discouraging fellow designers to use fur, and will inform them about the horrors of the fur industry. To celebrate his new cruelty-free lifestyle, Bartlett plans to launch a vegan shoe and accessory line for fashion-forward vegan men.
