Alice Vandy wins PETA Vegan's new designer award

Young Cornwall-based designer Alice Vandy has picked up this year’s Most Talented New Designer award at the just held PETA-approved Vegan Fashion Awards in London.
 
Known for her ethical animal-friendly fashions, the celebrity-favourite designer was awarded for her colourful, digitally-printed leggings, dresses and swimwear made from synthetic materials and techniques that are inspired from the beauty of animal skins.
 
Other than Vandy, the event also honoured big names like Vivienne Westwood with the Most Stylish Men’s Outerwear title for a printed jacket as well as Stella McCartney with the Most Stylish Women’s Knitwear trophy for her jacquard jumper.
 
Apart from the designers, well-known retailers like Miss Selfridge and ASOS additionally scooped up the Most Stylish Women’s Outerwear (for a chic wool-free collarless neon zipcoat) and the Most Stylish Men’s Belt (a worn-look tan belt with map print) awards respectively.
 
The UK-based Marks & Spencer bagged the Most Stylish Men’s Knitwear honour for its Cashmilon V-neck jumper at the prize ceremony.
 
Organized by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals Foundation (PETA), UK, the Vegan Fashion Awards recognise the brands that promote and support kind treatment to animals by using pleather, faux-fur, mock-croc and other cruelty-free materials in their designs.
