VEO: Fashion with a friendly flavour
Burnaby, B.C. February 10, 2012 – “If you’re not willing to eat the animals, then how can you possibly think of wearing them?” This is the Catch 22 of many vegans and vegetarians alike. Laying her heart on the line, Fashion designer Nam Kim introduces her debut collection VEO; a fashion apparel line that produces animal free clothing for the creative, professional woman. Using eco-friendly and organic fabrics along with recycled materials, Kim’s eye for style and elegant aesthetic fuses with her compassion for animals. Her goal is to produce a line that is pleasing to many taste palettes.
The collection “Raw Beauty” focuses on the colours, minerals and very offerings of the earth in their raw and natural form as Mother Nature intended. Succulent Cranberry hues and warm toasty Oatmeals are mixed with cozy organic cottons and eco-friendly Tencel. Appealing to the fashionable woman who doesn’t want to wear what they eat or simply wants to live a healthier lifestyle.
Giving animals a voice in the fashion industry, VEO humanizes the issue of animal cruelty, bringing it to a level that people can relate to more readily through fashion. Kim focuses on reducing her carbon footprint through all aspects of VEO’s designs and development while showcasing a fashionable alternative, and ultimately a lifestyle.
Taste the difference of VEO on April 3, 2012 at the River Rock Theatre located at 8811 River Road, Richmond B.C.
