“This is not some hemp rough hippie clothing. These are every bit as sleek and sometimes even sleeker [than leather].” [03:00]

“When animals are raised for leather and fur it has a tremendously damaging impact on the environment.” [05:00]

“Getting dressed is something we all do. Fashion is an amazing way to convey the message of compassion.” [10:00]

“It’s not faux fur, it’s vegan fur. It’s not faux leather, it’s vegan leather.” [14:00]
