Leona Lewis: 'I Want to Do a Vegetarian Range of Clothing'

Leona Lewis might love fashion, but not at the expense of her moral beliefs. In the June issue of InStyle UK, the British songstress and animal rights advocate tells the magazine that she plans to design her own vegetarian fashion line. Featured on the cover, the singer-songwriter, who has always spoken of her struggle to find cool non-leather shoes, speaks to InStyle about designer-favorite Stella McCartney, as well as her plans to start her own animal-friendly line. “I love Stella,” she says. “I want to do a vegetarian range of clothing. I haven’t had time to properly focus on it, I’m still designing.” The 25-year-old singer, who divides her time between London and Los Angeles, has always been outspoken about her beliefs, refusing to wear fur, leather, suede or any other animal by-product–whether on the red carpet or for a photo shoot. When famed British department store Harrods invited Lewis to open their sale, she refused on the basis that the London store sold fur. “I really believe in standing up for what you believe in,” she tells the magazine. “I’d never take money for something that goes against my beliefs.” With her friend Stella rumored to be on board as a consultant, we’re happy to reap the rewards, and can’t wait to see the finished products.

I really hope Leona does launch a vegeterian clothing line with accessories! It’s about time that there are more fashion options for those of us that care about animals!
