 Vegan Fashion Resources  

Below you will find some curated guides that I consider super helpful for understanding more about vegan fashion and how to easily achieve it. They cover materials, vegan alternatives and tricks to incorporate to your shopping to make shopping vegan a habit that eventually doesn’t take much thought. I know that at first, making changes and even thinking about things you haven’t considered before, can feel like a lot. That is why I picked these guides and will soon incorporate more- so there is a place to start. Some of these guides begin with the very basics of vegan fashion- which is the why. There is more on that in my Cruelty Isn’t Beautiful article you can read here

The mission of Vria is to make vegan fashion easier for everyone. I truly recommend reading these guides to anyone who wants to learn more about vegan fashion. Also, please feel free to share in the form below the topics that you would be interested in learning more about- since I will take them into consideration for finding or creating more resources. 

Vegan fashion, as anything else, gets easier with time. As something worthy of pursue, it is fortunate that some people have already been figuring this out for a while, creating resources to make it less difficult for others.
