All the best vegan-friendly and sustainable fashion brands in the UK.
More people than ever will be taking part in Veganuary this January, but it's worth keeping in mind that - for many - doing so extends further than simply changing your diet.
Swearing off animal products in all aspects of life - including beauty, fashion and homeware - is the path chosen by most vegans, and there are now a number of brands who make it easy to do so.
Here are some vegan fashion brands to look out for this Veganuary:
Vegan watch brand: Votch
Gone are the days when good quality and trendy watches rely on leather straps - all-vegan brand VOTCH has arrived on the market, and it's an absolute game-changer.
The straps are made from vegan leather made to replicate the real thing, and they offer a variety of styles and colours to choose from.
Prices start from £120 for their Classic Collection, and £135 for their Piñatex Collection.
The straps (which cost £25) are sold separately so you can change your style to suit the occasion.
THREE-SIX-FIVE: vegan bags and accessories
This brand was founded by Made In Chelsea star Tiffany Watson, who had a vision to create accessories that are both luxury and vegan. All products and packaging are both vegan and recycled, meaning they don't harm the environment.
The vegan cross-body bag, which can be personalised is perhaps their most popular item, and there are also a range of vegan leather 2020 Diaries which start from £35.
Beyond Skin: vegan shoes
Vegan shoes are pretty tricky to come by, as many styles contain leather.
To fill that gap, Beyond Skin sell high quality, high end shoes that are 100 per cent.
They don't come cheap, but they are worth the money for their durability and sustainability.
Free People: vegan clothes, shoes and accessories
Although Free People is not an all-vegan clothing brand, they have an all-vegan shop that sells shoes, clothes, bags and beauty products.
Their vegan leather products include jackets, trousers, shoes and bags.
Vegan Outfitters sells a number of hugely popular slogan tops adorned with words like 'Kale' and 'Herbivore'.
What's more, every time you buy something from their store, some of the proceeds will go to animal charities.
