The Fashion Debates: is the Future of Fashion Vegan?

SEEN has been following Olivia Pinnock and the Fashion Debates for a while now. With a diversity of subject matter from the sizes of models and sustainability in the fashion business comes a vital new strand for discussion: Is the future of fashion vegan?

SEEN would say it is. What the customer/consumer wants he or she gets. As the move away from animal products quickens in pace and more people adopt vegan diets, it surely only remains for fashion to take up the challenge. Where the couture houses lead, others will surely follow.

Your panel: Yvonne Taylor – Director of Corporate Projects, PETA
Malcolm Proot – Director, Walter Reginald leather suppliers
Alicia Lai – Founder and Director, Bourgeois Boheme vegan shoes

The debate will take place tonight (Thursday 26th October) at the Condé Nast College of Fashion and Design. You can get tickets here

Condé Nast College of Fashion & Design
16-17 Greek Street

Three Cities: New Photographs from Niall O’Brien

SEEN is looking forward to seeing a new exhibition of photographs taken in the beating heart of America’s Silicon Valley, a place that by Niall O’Brien’s account was packed to the gills with cutting-edge technology yet had no aesthetic at all – except for the surrounding mountains and opportunistic nature.
