VAUTE A/W 2013 Presentation

Fashion week kicked off early with the first all vegan label to show during New York Fashion Week, VAUTE by Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart. It was held at Eyebeam studios which provided an industrial background to these organic clothes. It featured looks for both and women. The inspiration for the collection was sailor moon so there were bright colors, heart tights, and full skirts. I would also say there was a bit of hipster mixed in with slouchy beenies and high-waisted trousers. Leanne expande her ethical line to include winter accessories in her first ready-to-wear collection. All the clothes are produced in New York's Garment district.
I have to give a shout-out to Vegan Treats Bakery because before the show started they passed out delicious sweets and I seriously loved all of them. The cheesecake, the peanut butter brownies, tiramisu... so good! But onto the clothes...

The women's collection is comprised of vegan leather detailing, zip off skirts and hoods along with zero waste satins, organic cotton fleece and flannel, soy fiber knits and vegan tweeds.
I loved the blue pants and the hair on this model. I've done a similar style.
I loved this look. Looks comfy yet chic and I want that hat!

But the stars of the show were the dogs! All the dogs featured were up for adoption from the Humane Society of New York an Badass Brooklyn Rescue. So glad I didn't read that detail until I had left because I totally would have taken a dog home (breaks my heart!).

I loved the makeup and hair that accompanies the Sailor Moon look. Read more about the products used with my interview with Rebecca Casciano at Blush & Beakers.

Items range from $30 for a t-shirt to $300 for a coat. So glad I had the opportunity to see this collection and learn more about this brand. Leanne is doing amazing things and being innovative while not sacrificing her values. Love it!

What did you think of the collection?
