INIFD’s All-Vegan Graduation Fashion Show Turns Heads and Hearts

Posted on by PETA

There’s nothing chic about wearing animal carcasses, as the graduating students of the International Institute of Fashion Design (INIFD) have effortlessly demonstrated with their all-vegan graduation fashion show on 30 August. PETA was there for all the style action with an interactive stall full of goodies to help promote compassionate fashion.

Siliguri’s very own Suvagata Das dedicated her cruelty-free collection to PETA and the celebration of vegan fashion. Suvagata’s new line was full of captivating designs that dazzled the audience.

What You Can Do

PETA US’ damning investigation of shearing sheds in the US and Australia (where more than 50 per cent of the world’s merino wool comes from) documented shearers punching, kicking and stomping on sheep and even beating one lamb in the head with a hammer and breaking the neck of another. You have the power to prevent more sheep from being abused and barbarically killed right now by pledging never to purchase or wear wool.
