I am coming at you all today with a cruelty-free vegan shoe brand called Olsenhaus. Elizabeth Olsen (no, not that one) founded this brand in 2008. She has an unwavering commitment to the ethics of producing fabrics and materials and more specifically, to the treatment of animals. Under “The Truth” in her website, you will find a rather graphic explanation of how leather goods and other garments made of animals are made. Beware, it contains truly unsettling images of animal torture but it is an important truth and wake-up call.
Elizabeth Olsen has worked for notable brands such as Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein, which shows her design repertoire is quite impressive. In addition to being a great shoe designer, she’s also an activist in the fashion community – leading the fight against animal cruelty. Her art is her message and luckily, many magazines and celebrities have been taken by her designs. Her latest fans? Gwyneth Paltrow followed by a long string of A-listers.
Olsenhaus merges great, fun designs with socially responsible ethics. Check out her spring collection for 2014 — let me tell you, it is good. Prints galore for a stylish spring!
All of her shoes are priced around $150-$200 and are available online and in select stores! You can even find her shoes @ amazon.com
