Vegan fashion brand VAUTE Couture will return from its year-long hiatus in September. Two of its popular styles, the Lincoln and Casto vegan coats, are currently in production and will soon be available for pre-order, as reported by VegNews.
Last year, production of VAUTE products was halted indefinitely. However, the scheduled relaunch was prompted due to high customer demand. The brand will also release archived styles via Instagram to the public in the upcoming weeks.
VAUTE was founded in 2009 by designer, Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart, with the mission to eliminate the use of animals in the fashion industry. Her goal was to prove that vegan materials can be just as warm, fashionable, and comfortable as animal-derived wool, fur, and down.
“I missed you all so much! So grateful to be here with you wonderful humans, some of you from the very beginning. This will be our 11th year saying to the world: You don’t need animals to stay warm,” Hilgart said. “Each coat we make saves animals and supports local production and jobs, thanks to all of you.”
