“The relationship between fashion, factory farming, and climate change cannot be ignored. Vegan sustainable fashion is the ultimate answer to climate change and waste pollution. I created an inclusive and collaborative movement dedicated to redesigning the industry and the consumers’ daily habits” says Vegan Fashion Week creator and animal rights activist, Emmanuelle Rienda. Vegan Fashion Week is the leading destination for ethical fashion globally and a creative ode to the end of animal exploitation and a celebration of human evolution.
