This month we celebrated the launch of the first ever PETA-approved Vegan Fashion Awards in the UK. With celebrity judges including Sadie Frost and Meg Mathews, the awards saw some big ethical fashion brands recognised and rewarded. Eco fashion stalwart Stella McCartney cleaned up in the Most Stylish Shoes and Most Stylish Sneakers categories and Vivienne Westwood walked away with the award for Most Stylish Handbag. Judge Sadie Frost said that with ethical consumerism on the rise, retailers need to respond by using compassionately produced material if they don’t want to get left behind. The awards also marked the launch of PETA’s new logo, which UK shoppers can use to spot vegan goods.
