W Magazine Editor Continues Transition To Vegan Fashionista

W Magazine is on a bit of a vegan kick — spearheaded by their Senior Fashion Features Editor Dana Wood, and a rising interest from readers in purchasing ethical and animal-free designer swag.

When last we checked in, Wood had just released a list of hot vegan accessories from top designers — with only one item (from Stella McCartney no less) receiving a bit of flak from our readers. Now, she’s going a bit more in-depth on her journey to seeking out ethical fashion with an article titled “Trials of a Fashion-loving Vegan-in-training”. Here’s a bit from the piece:

Until there’s a better selection of vegan accessories and fashion out there, it’s hard to be a purist. Because the reality is that much of the pleather, plastic and other man-made stuff is pretty awful. I know because I shop for it for myself all the time. Although I’ve had some luck recently (ranging from a cozy $50 pair of faux fur slippers from Planet Shoes to $600 Beyond Skin hemp boots), I’ve also spent money on vegan stuff that I ended up hating. The quality just wasn’t there. That’s why I’ve also recently nabbed a nylon bag from Tod’s, a coated canvas tote from Goyard and a linen Speedy from Vuitton, all of which have—sorry guys—trim or  handles made of leather.

It’s a great article — and Wood provides some much-needed direction with options, designers, and products out there to satiate even the most discriminating fashion vegans. I like what W is doing — and can appreciate their gradual approach to anyone considering shifting their fashion habits in a more animal-friendly direction. Check out the rest of the piece here.
