PETA Gives a Talk on Ethical Fashion at WLCI Kolkata

Posted on by PETA

People are increasingly choosing eco-friendly vegan options, and brands around the world are now paying attention to ethical fashion. This is leading to an increase in the use of pleather, faux silk, fake snake, and other cruelty-free fabrics, which are now more popular than ever.

Today, PETA India was at WLCI, Kolkata to speak to students about vegan fashion and share information about these great materials. Benazir Suraiya, a fashion expert and PETA’s associate manager of celebrity and media projects, explained how easy it is to make a compassionate choice.



Faux-leather shoes by Ethik, Senso, and Veruschka; canvas shoes by Funk; faux-leather bags by Baggit, gqp Accessories, and Merci; faux-fur jacket by ASOS; and a banana silk saree by Pallod Creations were shown to the students to highlight that of cruelty-free vegan products which can easily replace those made from animals’ body parts and look good too.

And here’s what we showed the students:

They were taken aback after watching the atrocious cruelty to animals shown in this video. Benazir went on to explain that they can avoid such abuse by using vegan materials.
