V is for Vegan. Vote. Voice. It’s for the animals, the Earth, and for making a difference with tiny every day choices that add up.

Spelled for Haute Couture with a V for Vegan, but said like VOTE—VAUTE is an independent fashion house by Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart whose raison d’etre is to develop apparel and fabrics that are better than wearing animals ever could be.
In February 2013, VAUTE broke history as the first all vegan label to show at New York Fashion Week, with their first full RTW collection. CNN covered it as “Animal free clothes break runway history.” Soon after, BusinessInsider named VAUTE one of the most innovative businesses in NYC, and US News & World Report said of the opening show, “No one missed the leather- or the fur.”
