So exciting! The winners of VEGAN Happy Clothing have been announced after months of preparation and ploughing through 700 fantastic entries from all over the world.
After careful consideration by VEGAN Happy founder Lorri Delahunty, VeggieVision TV founder Karin Ridgers, founder of campaigning charity Viva! Juliet Gellatley and Vegan Food and Living editor Holly Johnson… six exceptional winners have been chosen to champion the cause of vegan fashion – and more.
The competition, which aimed to celebrate and promote sustainable, cruelty-free living saw an outpouring of enthusiasm from contestants worldwide with over 700 entries.
The icing on the vegan cake was for the celebrated artist and cultural icon Heather Small to not only be the star judge – however to also attend the winners’ celebration too.
“Huge congratulations to the passionate, go getting worthy winners and what a blast we had at Hopefield Animal Sanctuary to celebrate! I wish them all the best as ambassadors moving forward with Lorri and her team – and as a vegan myself I am delighted to have been part of the competition too.”
The competition, launched by Lorri sought to showcase the incredible every day people within the vegan community, with an emphasis on winners who encompassed the values of compassion, that something special and positive energy.
The competition brought together a diverse group of people including artists, creatives, content creators, business people, and mostly everyday vegans! “We just wanted Mr, Mrs or Mx NextDoor …. who share a deep passion for cruelty-free fashion and style and a positive go-getting vegan lifestyle!”
Lorri, who is a trailblazer in the vegan fashion industry, was thrilled by the response to the competition.
“I am truly humbled and inspired by the incredible talent that has emerged through this competition,” she remarked. “It’s a testament to the growing awareness and demand for vegan-friendly fashion that aligns with our values of compassion and sustainability.”
The six winners of the VEGAN Happy Clothing Competition were selected based on that something special – perhaps their X Factor!
