Die Ethical Fashion in Berlin hat gezeigt, dass sich die "Vegane Mode" weiterentwickelt hat.
In den letzten Jahren in Deutschland bin ich immer naserümpfend an diesen "häßlichen" Schuh-, Kleider- und Taschenmodellen vorbei gegangen. Das wird sich nun ändern. Jetzt kann man sie kaufen ohne Abstriche machen zu müssen. Allerdings ist der positive Einfluss aus dem "Ausland" unübersehbar. Außerdem haben wir eine anspruchsvolle Jugend, die sich bewusst kleiden möchte ohne den Anspruch an gelungene Mode aufzugeben.
There is no need to be boring in producing vegan fashion!
