With more and more people supporting plant-based diets and lifestyles, it was only a matter of time before vegan fashion picked up. Just a few short years ago, vegan fashion was extremely niche and saw very little exposure in the marketplace. Today, fashion lines that are produced without the use of any animal products are readily available and thriving. With that in mind, below are 9K vegan fashion brands that are poised for success in the market.
1. STELLA MCCARTNEY
Stella McCartney specializes in vegan silk — a luxury fabric not many would associate with vegan fashion. McCartney’s brand combines timeless fashion and modern energy in a classy, understated way.
2. VAUTE COUTURE
Vaute Couture specializes in outerwear staples. The brand is entirely vegan, sweatshop-free, and friendly to the environment. Vaute Couture is functional above all, with unique details and flattering silhouettes that make the brand wearable as well.
3. MATT & NAT
Vegan fashion brand Matt and Nat produce high-quality handbags and accessories — free of leather or other animal products. The brand has exceedingly high standards for the factories they employ and the materials they use. Its line of products is minimalist, unique, and charming.
OlsenHaus was founded by designer Elizabeth Olson, who believes that vegan fashion can be had without compromising quality or style. OlsenHaus donates products every year to fundraising events for pro-vegan organizations.
5. John Bartlett
John Bartlett’s award-winning line of men’s fashion products was created in an effort to maintain consistency with it’s founder’s vegan lifestyle. Bartlett, a Harvard graduate, founded his “Tiny Tim” fashion line in 2011 in an effort to use fashion to aid animal rescue groups. His clothing is casual, fun, and affordable.
6. James & Co
James & Co creates fashionable vegan outerwear — including a great line of “leather” jackets. James & Co’s line is modern and urban, and has a high level of quality with the “designer” price tag.
7. Brave GentleMan
Joshua Kutcher’s menswear line uses a slow-fashion production model (meaning they create high-quality, long-lasting products that stay in style with the times.) This vegan menswear brand was created to be animal-friendly and sustainable for the whole planet. Brave GentleMan ensures all of their factory employees are paid fair, living wages for their work. Their New York factories use unique, planet-friendly materials and the clothes themselves are on trend while maintaining a distinct level of timelessness.
MioMojo is an Italian fashion brand that values ethical production, sustainability, and vegan materials. Their luxury handbags are stylish — some carry a surprisingly rustic feel, while others are what you would expect from a classic Italian fashion brand. MioMojo creates designer-level fashion at entry-level price points, making sustainable vegan fashion available and realistic for anyone.
Gosia Piatek founded this impeccably-styled vegan fashion line. KowTow’s fashion is understated, minimalist, and well-made, offering unique designer fashion for the planet-conscious consumer. The brand offers a full line of women’s denim, dresses, outerwear, and accessories, among other things.
