Vegan Fashion Week is a four-day event consisting of runway shows, exhibitions, and talks about animal rights and social justice. The event is designed to empower ethical brands by giving them an opportunity to showcase their animal-free designs.

Curated by French stylist Emmanuelle Rienda, the inaugural World’s First Vegan Fashion Week will focus on the theme “facing our time” and will explore the environmental challenges of climate change. Rienda says that she wants to ignite conversations and debates in the fashion industry about respecting human life, animal rights, and the environment.

“I want to ignite conversations and debates within the industry by educating, elevating and drawing connections between our most important values; our respect for human life, animal rights, and the environment,” explained Rienda.

The event described as “a tribute to the animals and an ode to the end of animal exploitation” starts off on Friday, February 1st at the Natural History Museum of LA, with Nobel Peace Prize laureate and climate scientist Robert Lempert will be giving a talk. The website is touting the night as an intimate soiree where fashion meets activism with a deeply conscious twist.

Over the following two days, guests will get to experience a vegan world at the California Market Center. Where they will be able to peruse vegan-friendly designer clothing and chill out at the vegan lounge where there will be cruelty-free fashion, beauty products, and globally sourced food alternatives. There will be a private fundraising event held on Sunday.
