Actor and supermodel Milind Soman has been named the ‘Best Vegan Fashion Style Icon’ at PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) India’s Vegan Fashion Awards 2021.

Soman has been an advocate of animal welfare and has often highlighted the need to raise ones voice against animal cruelty. “No leather, no silk, no wool,” Milind wrote on Instagram in March 2019. “No pain caused to animals just to satisfy human vanity. If you care, this is the alternative.”

From silk-free saris to leather-free bags, wallets, and shoes, it’s easier than ever to get a fashion-forward look that leaves cruelty to animals in the past, Monica Chopra, PETA India senior media and celebrity projects coordinator, said in a press statement.

Notably, the 2017 Pulse of the Fashion Industry report revealed that leather, silk, and wool are among the most polluting materials in fashion. As per PETA India, turning animal skin into garments requires massive amounts of energy and dangerous chemicals that damage the environment.

“The winners of PETA India’s awards prove that the future of Indian fashion is vegan,” Chopra added.
