a vegan fashion show? You also might be wondering what constitutes
vegan apparel. Kara Ashe, spokesperson for the event, tells us that
nothing that comes from an animal -- fur, silk, leather, wool, necklaces
strung with the skulls of squirrels -- can be used in a vegan outfit.
"You might see cotton," she says. "You'll see bamboo." Other materials used in vegan clothing include plastic and polyester, she says.
We're not sure how eco-friendly it is to substitute petroleum byproducts for animal hides, but no matter. The action goes down from 4:45 to 6 p.m. this Saturday at the San Francisco Vegetarian Society's 11th Annual World Vegetarian Festival, held at the County Fair Building in Golden Gate Park. We at The Snitch will stick to checking out Lady Gaga.
