Designer of the Day…Olsen Haus

The footwear of the olsen Haus line are not only super cute, but they’re also 100% vegan! It’s not often that you come across footwear designers that have amazing shoes that look like suede and leather…but are actually not. You see, the shows of olsen Haus are manufactured out of respect and compassion for animals. Therefore no shoes are made of leather and skins, which means no animals have to go through the cruel manufacturing processes that unfortunately goes on in the fur and skins industry.

Elizabeth Olsen, the designer behind olsen Haus, has been in the fashion wold for years. She was creative director at Tommy Hilfiger and has also designed for Calvin Klein & Nine West (among others). She’s also been a print stylist for footwear giants, Nike…clearly it’s no surprise that she would decide to helm her own shoe line.

These are very chic…and humane. I think it’s safe to say that while everyone may not agree on the fur debate, it is awesome that their are options out there that are helping to find a solution 🙂
