We love to see Stella McCartney encouraging her peers to explore vegetarian alternatives to leather.

On our minds is Business of Fashion’s recent print edition on current issues in the fashion industry and educational talk on how to create a sustainable luxury brand fronted by Stella McCartney. We loved to see McCartney encouraging her peers to explore vegetarian alternatives to leather which she is still one of very few practitioners to embrace within the luxury scene. The talk, with some important established and upcoming designers in the audience, went as to whether leather or non-leather materials has the greatest impact on the environment and McCartney was sure to make her point that leather is more harmful due to the energy and toxins used in its production. We were happy to see McCartney not only inspire the audience to explore leather alternatives and to embrace her default mindset that something is better than nothing, but to encourage the industry to work collaboratively when facing the issues going forward.
