Back in February Vaute Couture, an eco-friendly vegan fashion house, introduced cruelty free fashion to thousands (possibly millions) as news of their show hit the front page of CNN and other news outlets.

Vaute Couture founder and creative director, Leanne Mai-Ly Hilgart, is now being honored by animal protection powerhouse Farm Sanctuary for all her work to help animals through fashion. On May 4th, the public is invited to come see a reprise of the vegan fashion show that made headlines for Farm Sanctuary’s Fashion Loves Animals event in New York City.

Leanne told us, “To be honored by Farm Sanctuary means so much to me. Farm Sanctuary gives faces to the billions of faceless farm animals that we as a country murder every year for food and clothing. Farm Sanctuary lets people connect with the rescued sheep, chickens, and cows, to realize what beautiful animals they are wearing and eating every year, and hopefully leave choosing differently.”

And once they do choose differently they will have animal-free options from companies such as hers so that they can feel good about their decision and look great while doing it.
