Animal-loving singer Leona Lewis has put together a shopping guide to help fans interested in buying cruelty-free fashion.
Bleeding Love hitmaker, a staunch vegetarian and longtime animal rights
campaigner, admits she would love to purchase leather shoes and
handbags, but she is committed to only buying items made without animals
In a post on her blog, Lewis writes, "Yes, it's true I
do often drool over the latest Laboutin (sic) collections. How I'd love
to run around and catch a glimpse of that red sole on my feet. Oh how I
daydreamed of owning an oversized tote a la Mulberry... But I soon snap
out of it when I realise that the chemically treated, drummed,
stretched, dyed leather in that pretty pink shoe or the slouchy Topshop
bag was once part of a beautiful creature that suffered at the hands of humans."
Lewis goes on to list her top tips for finding animal-friendly
outfits, including brands and websites selling faux-skin designs, and
she also explains the different symbols printed on labels that indicate materials used.
