PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) launched a vegan fashion masterclass for its UK partner universities including the University of Chester, Robert Gordon University Aberdeen and Greater Brighton Metropolitan College.

The students created animal-friendly garments including vegan leather dresses and skirts, vegan fur hats and more; made from bio-based vegan fur Koba from French manufacturer Ecopel and Mabel Industries’ vegan leather made from apple waste.

Student designer: Georgia Clutton Baxter
Student designer: Courtney Lovatt
Student designer: Will Stanbridge

Elisa Allen, PETA director, said in a statement: “Today’s fashion students recognise that no garment justifies killing an animal and polluting the planet. The future of fashion lies in innovative vegan fabrics, and PETA is proud to help these up-and-coming designers lead the way.”
