Hailed to be one of the first high style fashion brands to make products without any animal-derived materials, Vaute Couture’s roots began with a limited release of coats made with vegan fabrics in 2009.
Fast forward to now, Vaute Couture stands tall as one of the world’s most well-accepted vegan fashion houses, with winter release collections of coats and winter-wear that are built to weather through cold seasons, made without relying on conventional wool and/or silk in their construction.
Founded by Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart, Vaute Couture has been dubbed Company of the Year by VegNews Magazine, with Hilgard herself being dubbed as one of Ecouture’s Emerging Green Designers (1 of 7) in 2009, as well as being awarded for “Breaking Barriers in Green” by the Asian American Leadership Council.
Pronounced as “vote”, Vaute Couture takes its name from haute couture, replacing the H with a V, which stands for vegan.
Highlighting winter coats, sweatshirts, knits, t-shirts and fashion accessories, all of Vaute Couture’s products are made without any animal-derived materials, utilizing recycled and recyclable fibers and organically produced materials. Superior in the construction of its products, Vaute Couture even has a line of knits made from Soy Beans, and also boasts a line of witty “statement shirts” for men and women.
With celebrity endorsers like Emily Deschanel, Ally Sheedy and Alicia Silverstone, animal lovers and fashion aficionados from Minneapolis to Australia are solid supporters of Vaute Couture, not just for its highly fashionable and sensible wears, but also for what the brand stands for.
If you happen to be on the lookout for quality winter coats or superior sweatshirts made without any animals harmed, Haute Couture has something for you.
