PETA #VeganFashion

This video series was created for PETA, to promote alternatives textiles instead of using animal products for fashion.

Highlighting the revolution in vegan leather footwear and reminding us how the new model helps to rectify disastrous effects of the leather industry, Stephanie Nicora, owner and founder of Nicora Johns, gives PETA an unprecedented insider’s look at her process creating only 100 percent cruelty-free, eco-friendly, and fair-wage handmade shoes made of all-recycled materials in the company’s Los Angeles factory.

Being made with vegan wool means being of high-tech, eco-friendly, cruelty-free construction—a model set to take over the fashion industry. Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart of VAUTE introduces PETA to her chic wool-free coats and chunky knit sweaters, which encourage positive change by taking animals out of the fashion equation and allow us to look and feel that much better getting dressed in the morning.

Anna Sui

 

The most interesting part of fashion week to me has always been the behind the scenes, the hours of prep that go into a 3 minute show.  This behind the scenes video gives a preview of some of Anna Sui’s new products and the models that love them.

Stela9

Stela9 is one of my favorite brands to work with, being based in Antigua, Guatemala there’s always good food, good people, and adventures to be had.    One of the things I love about this brand is how they work with the local economy already in place, and have been growing together.    We started shooting together in 2011 and have been developing the brands look ever since.
