Although following a healthy vegan diet is the most beneficial thing any one person can do for their own health and the health of the planet, I’m proud to say that my vegan lifestyle has extended far beyond the foods I eat. Seeking out cruelty-free and ethically-made cosmetics, accessories and clothing, has made my life more meaningful in every possible way. It feels really great to know that I’m striving to look and feel my best without hurting animals, the environment or others along the way. So when I spot a fabulous new chic, ethical and cruelty-free clothing company on the horizon, my heart beats with excitement.
My heart is pounding with excitement at this very moment over the emergence of Georgie & Elaine, a contemporary women’s wear brand based in New York City which uses alternative novelty fabrics including vegan leather, soy silk and ahimsa silk. The company’s founder, Devin VanderMaas, prides herself on creating effortless yet enduring separates which maintain the delicate balance between timeless sophistication and contemporary excitement while staying vegan, non-violent and eco-friendly at the same time.
In addition to using non-violent and eco-friendly fabrics, Georgie & Elaine uses sustainable packaging and supplies, and follows ethical business practices. Their products are made with kindness and care in mind for laborers, the environment and animals. Ms. VanderMaas believes sustainability is not just a trend, it is the future, and it should not be treated or marketed as something special, it should simply be a standard for all industries. I couldn’t agree more!
I’m particularly thrilled with Georgie & Elaine’s use of “peace silks” such as soy silk and ahimsa silk because they are manufactured in a process where no silkworms are killed. I’m very happy about this because I’ve always loved the feel of silk, and now I can wear it again with Georgie & Elaine’s brand of clothing which doesn’t harm precious animals in the making.
The vegan icing on the cake of Georgie & Elaine’s collection is the sheer beauty, elegance, sophistication and versatility of the clothing which will enable fashion forward vegan women to stay on trend while maintaining strong commitments to their core values. Non-vegan women will also go crazy for Georgie & Elaine’s clothing line because it’s HOT, HOT, HOT! I’m “head-over-heels” in love with their designs which can be worn during the day at the office through an evening out on the town, or anytime in between. The best part is that the pieces can easily be mixed and matched for more gorgeous looks.
