Vegan fashion, like vegan food, sounds nice in theory, but it’s never quite as satisfying as what it’s imitating, is it? Would you prefer an ostrich-skin bag imported from Italy or a plastic one from China? A medium-rare burger with bacon or a veggie pattie topped by avocados? Well, Kate McGregor of Kaight eco-boutique is hoping to change your preferences. Gone are the shapeless frocks and the imitation-leather clogs. In their place come Stewart + Brown’s organic cotton jerseys, Bahar Shapar’s cocktail dresses, and Melissa shoes. Handbags lining Kaight’s shelves are stitched together from vintage leather coats or horse saddles—a great way to be ethical without completely forsaking your fabric of choice.
