Vegan Fashion Debuts in LA

01.29.19

Vegan Fashion Week, dedicated to elevating ethical fashion globally, will be making its grand debut in Los Angeles beginning February 1. Produced and curated by French creative director and animal rights advocate, Emmanuelle Rienda, Vegan Fashion Week will be a tribute to the animals and an ode to the end of animal exploitation in all forms.

This unprecedented four-day event will launch with an exclusive opening soirée and tribute at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles, bringing fashion and activism together with a deeply conscious twist. In conjunction with the Los Angeles Night of Ideas, the Museum of Natural History will activate its galleries, diorama halls, theater and public spaces throughout the museum.

Highlights of the event will include a talk by climate scientist and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Robert Lempert, a vegan fashion runway showcasing vegan designers, a vegan capsule of high-end designer pieces, and a timeline displaying the evolution of vegan fashion and the brands committed to embracing cruelty-free practices. This year’s theme will be “Facing Our Time” and will explore the challenges faced around ecological and climate change through the lenses of science, nature, and art.

Following the night of the launch, guests will have the opportunity to travel to the LA Fashion District between February 2 - February 3 to experience a vegan world at the California Market Center, with a curated selection of animal-free designer pieces and a vegan lounge offering cruelty-free fashion, beauty, and culinary vegan innovations sourced globally from various countries. Brands, organizations, and attendees will have the opportunity to connect with conscious and like-minded individuals through activations, experiential exhibitions, and a conference featuring intellectual panels discussing the most critical issues in the fashion industry and the existing alternatives.

The week will close with a private fundraiser, bringing together like-minded celebrities and influencers, ethical fashion enthusiasts, and environmentalists to support vegan designers with a vegan fashion award, and the tools to help emerging and established designers to create cruelty-free alternatives.

Rienda’s long term goals include opening a sanctuary to animals directly impacted by the fashion industry and to continuously educate mainstream audiences and fashion brands with a traveling fashion week and conference across the globe until vegan fashion is the standard.
