Vegan Fashion Week Returns to Los Angeles Despite Coronavirus Outbreak

Vegan Fashion Week Returns to Los Angeles Despite Coronavirus Outbreak

Despite multiple iconic event cancellations and travel restrictions due to coronavirus, Vegan Fashion Week returns to Los Angeles this April. The leading ethical fashion movement decided the Fall 2020 show must go on.

“Now is a very important time to share our message and draw connections between sustainability and ethics. Animal exploitation is directly linked to the virus outbreak, the Australian bushfires, the Amazonian forest fires and our current global environmental crisis. I want to inspire positive change and elevate the conversation through fashion, because fashion is activism.” said Vegan Fashion Week creator and animal rights activist, Emmanuelle Rienda.

This year’s theme, “Expansion”, will explore the challenges surrounding ecological and climate change through the lenses of fashion, ethics, sustainability and animal rights. “We will present innovative alternatives to fur, leather, silk and wool. Fashion is the semiotic representation of our social and political climate, and Vegan Fashion Week is the unapologetic voice leading the charge for change. I truly loved the awareness during Paris Fashion Week but talking about climate change in a sea of leather on the runway is cognitive dissonance” says Rienda.

The threefold event inclusive of a designer showroom, a panel series and a collective fashion show, will take place in an intimate setting by invitation only, with measures to protect the health of event participants, reduce carbon footprint and focus on an elite showcase of 20 international fashion designers and innovators selected for their creativity, core values and impact.
