Sustainable design, animal-loving celebrities, and tons of vegan food? We’re pretty sure there isn’t anything better!

On Thursday, Ecorazzi spent the evening at the Vegan Glamour in Designers of the Future event in New York City. The high-energy evening celebrated a collaboration between Olsenhaus Pure Vegan shoes and PRATT institute, where students were given vegan materials and asked to come up with an original design. The winning shoe, created by student William Cherwin, was announced during the event and will receive a production run through Olsenhaus with profits going to Farm Sanctuary.

While viewing all the creative designs throughout the night, we sampled delicious food by caterers like Candle 79, The Regal Vegan, Vegan Treats and Lagusta’s Luscious. We also got to hang out with a few of our favorite animal-loving celebrities like Moby, Jane Valez-Mitchell, and Russell Simmons.

Simmons — who’s reality show Running Russell Simmons is currently airing on Oxygen — shared why he chooses to support both Olsenhaus and Farm Sanctuary.

“This is my community,” said Simmons. “This is a community that’s awake, aware of the suffering of animals, and doing something about it. I think the vegan community has grown over the last few years, and I’m very excited about it.”

And so are we!
