Natalie Portman has taken up design… big deal! Another hot actress designing clothes… This actually is a big deal. Sizzling its way through all the hottest fashion blogs is the actress’s Vegan footwear!
In previous posts we talked about a skirt that can save your life (Yael Mer’s evacuation skirt), a patch that can save your clothes. Here’s another Israeli going green…
Along with Te Casan, Natalie has created a line of shoes, which is now selling at Te Casan’s store on West Broadway. Te Casan, “’A Woman’s Path’,” the site explains, “is Gaelic and originates from the inspiration of a global name that represents no specific nation or language and refers to all women.”
Natalie, a vegan since childhood and Israeli born, practices what she preaches. This new line of shoes contains no animal products. Their site explains that Natalie, “a Harvard graduate, noted for charitable pursuits, noticed the absence of fashionable animal-friendly footwear and collaborated with Té Casan for her debut collection.”
It continues: “Portman worked closely throughout to maintain quality standards and an exceptional design aesthetic. Dazzling, playful, elegant and free of animal products, each shoe exudes the starlet’s own personal style.”
We at Green Prophet pay tribute! It is too often that the cost of luxury, weighs more on the environment than in our pockets. That is not to say that luxury is always affordable but thinking back to mink, or even today’s sweatshops… It’s nice to see that the two can go hand in hand.
