Cruelty Free Veg Fashion Show
A Cruelty Free Fashion Show will
take place during the 36th World Vegetarian Congress. Models will show
off clothes, shoes, belts, bags and other accessories, cosmetics, etc,
all entirely free of animal products and ingredients and not tested on
animals. Fashion consultant Danielle Ferraz of the Center for Fashion
Education of Senac, Sao Paulo, will coordinate the event.
One section of the show will be organized by the Fashion School of
Santa Catarina State University (UDESC) through curricular activities
coordinated by Lucas da Rosa, teacher of Modelling, and Neide Köhler
Schulte, teacher of Fashion Design.
Another section will be organized by Treetap, a company that produces
synthetic leather from vegetable material. Treetap® is a fabric
rubberized with natural latex, vulcanized by an exclusive
technological process, and especially developed for the wild seringals
(rubber plant forests) of Amazonia. Production of Treetap® is a
sustainable economic alternative for the rubber tapper populations,
helping to preserve their traditional cultures and the biodiversity of
the Indian Lands and Extraction Reserves.
