Just because you are an animal activist and environmentalist doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your sense of fashion! Even if you aren’t an animal activist I would like to encourage you to dress animal friendly.
First of all, there is absolutely no need to wear fur anymore; fur is so 1990s. If you have to feel like you are one with the animal world wear animal prints; not animal fur. If you wear animal prints however please do so appropriately.
The wrong use of animal prints can make you look trashy. Class up an animal print scarf by putting it around a classy trench coat, or class up a pair of animal print stilettos by putting them with a classic pants suit.
There are many companies out there that have gone completely animal and eco-friendly. One of these companies is Neuaura. Neuaura prides itself in designing and producing shoes that are completely free from animal bi-products and their entire shipping and receiving process is eco-friendly. You can shop for Neuaura shoes at www.neuaurashoes.com.
Another animal-friendly designer line is called MooShoes. MooShoes is based out of New York City and designs shoes, belts, jackets, purses and handbags among many other accessories. If you are in NYC stop by the workshop to witness an animal friendly design company in the works or browse around their web site at www.mooshoes.com.
For men, try www.jaanj.com for a plethora of vegan fashion including luxury satin ties. Jaan J. prides itself in being an exclusive designer of non-silk vegan ties.
A few other animal-friendly designers are Stella McCartney, Matt & Nat, and stores like New York Artificial and Bourgeois Boheme.
There are probably many brands out there that the average consumer does not know participates in the cruelty of animals through laboratory research testing or utilizing animals for their products.
Adidas is one of these brands as Adidas uses kangaroo skin for their athletic shoes. David Beckham whose beautiful wife Victoria “Posh” Spice is a strict vegan, came forward and said he would opt to wear a synthetic version of the Adidas shoe however he would not be wearing the Adidas athletic shoes made with kangaroo skin.
As you can see not only is it easy to maintain your sense of style and fashion while being animal friendly it is also apparently quite the ‘in’ thing to do!
