People who have favor in vegan style might already know about Vaute Couture. This is spelled for Haute Couture. The V here is for vegan but it is said like Vote or Vaute. If you still do not know Vaute Couture is independent fashion house. It was founded by Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart. Her main vision and mission is to develop apparel and fabrics which are much better than wearing animals.
Leanne stopped her modeling contract with Ford models. Instead, she dedicated herself for MBA at DePaul University to create the future of fashion. However, she did not forget her own mission to take out animals out from fashion equation. She promised that she will give her all to create something better for fashion. The history of Vaute Couture cannot be separated from Leanne’s history. She started her mission by creating perfect winter dress coat. Her main inspiration is lifetime cold winters in Chicago.
The first Vaute Couture collection was High Ethics vegan with 8 months of fabric R&D and community voted on designs. It was made of recyclable and recycled fibers. All the collections are produced locally. It is also important to note that first collection was warmer than wool, windproof, snow resistant, rain resistant, and heat retaining. All collections had the look and feel of winter dress coat but still kinder to the world. To make it simple, it is designed with all necessities to fight cold harsh winter while maintaining your style.
The line was launched in summer of 2009 to hundreds of preorders and they would wait for months before receiving them. It allowed Leanne to produce her custom fabrics with the same cutting edge mills which would work with Patagonia and North Face. Many people were attracted to her idea which is the combination of perfect coat and warmth and protection of performance fabrics. It is also supported with luxurious textures and cuts of dress coats. This is the part of history from Vaute Couture.
