The talk will also discuss three critical steps to Veganising your Wardrobe.

 

LaBante London is showcasing their new product line of Men’s and Women’s Wallets Exclusively at VegfestUK and these will be available for Sale at their Stand. They are a PETA approved Vegan brand that is pushing the boundaries on Ethical and Sustainable Fashion.

 

From the speaker

LaBante London is a labour of love, born out of a combined love of animals, fashion and the wider planet. My adolescent experiences definitely stuck with me and shaped the brand’s philosophy of Fashion With Respect.

In my early teens I spent many happy hours in my uncle’s fashion company, watching the creation of beautiful garments for big name fashion brands and therein started my love of fashion.

When I was a little older and studying at university, another pivotal moment shaped my future. I used to pass a butcher’s shop where animals were kept alive and caged before being killed in front of customers for their meat. It was a pretty transforming and life-changing event in my life and from that moment I became a vegetarian.

After I finished my university degree I landed up in the United States and somehow got into banking for my career, but there was always a niggling thought in the back of my head that called me to combine my passion for vegetarianism and fashion. I believed there was a gap in the fashion industry to make high-quality products that were not only beautiful and vied for, but were also cruelty-free and sustainable at the same time being accessible.

LaBante London started out really small in 2012 but grew from strength to strength as we received so much positive feedback and love from vegans, vegetarians, animal lovers and fashionistas all over the world. As we continued to expand, we had the pleasure of meeting fashion buyers who understood that change was coming and that the future was about ethics and sustainability. Encouraged and inspired, our brand has flourished it’s my promise to you that we will continue to develop beautiful and stunning designs and provide you with a range of vegan accessories all made with love that we hope you will wear with pride!
