Victoria Bartlett, VPL SS10

VPL01It’s Fashion week in NYC! Here is my interview with Victoria Bartlett about her show at the Chelsea Piers for Spring/Summer 2010.

In regard to her sponsorship by the Humane Society of the United States, she had this to say:

“I’ve always been anti-fur – I love my pets…and I could never see them being worn. It’s a very human time right now, and what’s the sense in more carnage? There are other things in life to celebrate and design doesn’t have to be draped with dead animals.” – Voctoria Bartlett

    Although not using fur in her collection is commendable, but for someone who “loves animals” she is still using quite a bit of leather. I can’t get behind that.

    • I agree that there is no excuse for leather. The Fashion industry has SO FAR to go in reference to animals – so even small steps need to be rewarded and highlighted and publicized. Hopefully some vegan shoe designers will contact her and show her that she can make fab non-leather shoes instead! 🙂
