BARE Fashion returns for second year
By BEL JACOBS
London’s only vegan fashion and beauty show is back for its second year, featuring catwalk shows, workshops and more than 100 of the best independent and well-known brands.
Taking over the Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane on 10th August, Bare Fashion is all set to capitalise on the dramatic increase in cruelty-free living.
At the heart of the event is the catwalk – a platform to showcase and celebrate a wide range of the new vegan and sustainable materials used by today’s designers, such as vegetable latex, pineapple leaf, organic cotton and cork. Last year, the catwalk featured show-stopping garments such as the gold Pinatex biker jacket from Altiir, Alice Vandy’s bright and bold dresses, bamboo silk dresses, and jumpsuits made from GOTs-certified organic cotton.
This year, the catwalk will feature 30 looks from high street to high end, including garments made from recyclable plastic, Tencel and Orange Silk. Every bit of it is vegan – even the models.
In addition to the catwalk, there will be an array of vegan clothing to purchase, including men’s streetwear by Piilgrim, shoes by Blanlac and Koi Footwear, and even a choice of sustainable underwear. Beauty products will also be available including Skyn ICELAND’s huge range of soothing products and Made by Coopers’ wellness-inspired artisan beauty products.
A vegan fashion panel discussion will be hosted by blogger and influencer Marta Canga, who will be joined by model and activist Kay Lovelle, and Sascha Camilli, author of Vegan Style: Your Plant Based Guide to Fashion, Beauty, Home and Travel.
A vegan beauty panel will be hosted by influencer, Nicole @VeganBeautyGirl who will be joined by renowned make-up artist Em-J, who has worked at London and Paris Fashion Weeks.
"Bare Fashion is a celebration of vegan fashion and beauty. BARE stands for Because Alternatives Really Exist – which they really do! – and we are bringing together a selection of them all under one roof,” says event organiser Sarah Lindsay. “Yes, it’s compassion-led but it is absolutely style-led, too. This show is for anyone interested in creating a fashionable, sustainable, ethical wardrobe and ensuring their beauty products are beautiful for animals and the planet, too. Bare Fashion is a wonderful celebration of compassion and fashion, and absolutely everyone is welcome.”
