)-- White Rhino Bags is the talk of the city as Claire Carreras presents her captivating concept collection at Vancouver Fashion Week (VFW) for the S/S 2020 Season. This featured brand is the incarnation of vegan musician and designer Claire Carreras who’s brand is all about unique, cruelty-free and sustainable fashion accessories that give back to animal welfare initiatives.
Vancouver Fashion Week is the fastest growing fashion week in the world and the only industry event that actively seeks out to showcase international award-winning designers from over 25 global fashion capitals. Since its inception 18 years ago, VFW has operated with a firm belief in being a well-grounded local initiative with global instincts and intuition.
“At Vancouver Fashion Week, diversity really is our greatest strength. We bring together the most incredible design talent from across Canada and around the world, presenting the most forward-thinking creative concepts to the industry. Fashion is a truly global phenomenon and its so inspiring to see such a strong mix of designers all under one roof here in Vancouver,” says Jamal Abdourahman, producer and founder of Vancouver Fashion Week.
The concept collection is a utopian experiment, bending the boundaries of upcycled, sustainable, and vegan fashion trends. It features head-to-toe design with the accessories as the focal point.
"An accessory is an extension of your own unique style and should speak to who you are as an individual,” says long-time Vancouver musician and designer Claire Carreras. She has developed her brand with the vision of making cruelty free and sustainable goods accessible to the mainstream. Designer fashion is only as good as the value you get from it.
Limited edition vegan leather designs are White Rhino’s specialty. The brand gives back to animal welfare initiatives with every purchase. “We prioritize the removal of animals from the fashion industry, and the joy of self-expression through fashion and education. The next phase for the brand is to explore new ways to bring sustainable and eco-friendly fashion to the mainstream.”
