Wearing white in winter can celebrate the season, and some designers with an ecofriendly focus know how to do it right.
These cold weather fashions were seen at the Vegan Eco Fashion Label Vaute Couture show this season.
This dress was refashioned using recycled satin.
An organic print shirt.
From the founder of Vaute Couture designer Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart, this vegan friendly coat is completely elegant.
Vaute Couture, who partners with several animal rights and rescue organizations, uses low impact and ecologically conscious fabrics in their designs. Their Fair Trade and vegan selections use materials like bamboo jersey and organic cotton, moleskin and velvet. They also feature items made from 100% recycled, zero waste reused fabrics, and have a vegan leather material that is made by using recycled knits from organic cotton fibers.
In an interview Hilgart discussed how she liked to play with putting together different concepts that balance each other out. Also, she enjoys pairing hourglass silhouettes with comfortable knits, as seen in the coats and jackets available in the line. This combination allows everyday wear that provides comfort, but retains its shape and looks stylish.
Her attention to the details, including a prominent eye on researching where her materials come from, stems from an early interest in animal rights as a child. Especially known for her coats, she stated that she decided to focus on fashion when she realized that there weren’t too many options for vegan outerwear at the time.
Her proactive approach in mixing her love of fashion design and representing animal welfare has led to some stellar, warm wearables (that makes my sale rack coat pale in comparison).
