I was so excited to be invited along to the preview of LaBante London's SS17 collection in collaboration with Shelly Vella (ex- editor of Cosmopolitan)
LaBante are a London based handbag & accessories company.
They are 100% vegan, cruelty-free, ethical and environmentally friendly! They are also PETA certified (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals)
As it states on their website:
"We want to give consumers the experience of luxury, of the finest craftsmanship, of a timeless aesthetic, while respecting the world we live in. "

The preview was held in the stylish Ethos resturant on Oxford street in London. I've always wanted to visit Ethos as i have often walked by and the food looks so inviting!
Ethos is an award winning self-service restaurant, serving up meat-free breakfast, lunches and dinners.
I highly reccomend popping in and trying out their delicious selection of food! It's amazing!
Inside Ethos, LaBante's NEW handbags looked beautiful placed amongst autumnal trees & leaves, along with some of their gorgeous jewellery on natural tree trunks. It looked really decorative and pretty, perfect for taking some instagram pictures! haha
The small red satchel caught my eye along with the studded black bag!
I own a beige LaBante bow bag and wear it everyday! It's one of my all time favoruite bags! The quality is amazing, it looks adorable & chic as well as being comforable to wear and easy to use with lots of room (it even fits in my large SLR, which is a huge bonus)
The jewelry being showcased was stunning and quite delicate,for everday or for a special occaision. I particularly liked a silver moon and star necklace.
As you can see in my photos, LaBante have some STUNNING new handbags which will be available very soon! I can't wait until they are released! A large pink tote caught my eye ;)
Shelly Vella (ex-cosmopolitan editor) has collabed with Labante to create 4 beautiful bags. Her collection has a boho vibe as you can see in the photos i took below-
All bags are made out of vegan leather/vegan suede.
She has created a alternative style to the previous LaBante bags. The range comes in sizes small, medium and large!
They all have tassle detailing adding to the boho vibe which i love!
I met Shelly who was very lovely and talked to me about her collection and why she has collabed with LaBante.
Shelly is vegetarian, with vegan beliefs towards animals and has worked with PETA in the past and she thought it would be an exciting venture.
The SS17 range in collab with Shelly will be launching Spring 2017!
It will be definitely be worth the wait!
Ethos served up some delicious homemade treats from Paradise unbakery including pesto tofu chunks, mini cheesecake bites, chocolate slabs and a beautifully decorated cheesecake!
Just look at this cheesecake! I really wanted a slice but didnt want to ruin its beauty! I bet it tasted amazing, like the little blueberry cheesecake bites & pesto tofu squares!
All the canapes and desserts were handmade by Paradise unbakery and i highly reccomend, they were out of this world good!!!!
I want to say thankyou to to LaBante for inviting me to this event and also for meeting so many wonderful and inspirational people!
