The winners at the PETA- Approved 2014 Vegan Fashion Awards – which recognise the best animal-free clothing and accessories – have been revealed by guest judge, Louise Redknapp.
The style savvy TV presenter, who has been consistently voted one of FHM’s Sexiest Women and is married to former England and Premier League footballer Jamie Redknapp, combined her passion for fashion and love for animals by teaming up with PETA on its second annual awards.
This year’s winners include Stella McCartney for Most Stylish Women’s Knitwear, Taeseok Kang for Most Stylish Handbag, Beyond Skin for Most Stylish Women’s Flat Shoes, Miss Selfridge for Most Stylish Women’s Outerwear, ASOS for Most Stylish Men’s Belt, Marks & Spencer for Most Stylish Men’s Knitwear, and Vivienne Westwood for Most Stylish Men’s Outerwear.
“Everywhere I go, from designer shops to the local Topshop, I see beautiful animal-free clothes, bags, shoes and wallets”, says Louise. “As an animal lover, I was delighted to help PETA choose this year’s best cruelty-free contributions to the fashion world. All the winners and nominees prove how easy it is to dress ethically from head to toe.”
Other retailers to take home prizes include Next, New Look, Topshop and Disaster Designs. Alice Vandy – whose colourful, digitally printed leggings, dresses and swimwear have attracted fans such as Jessie J and Kimberly Wyatt – won the title of Most Talented New Designer.
