After more than a decade of catering to anti-leather fashion lovers on the East Coast, MooShoes is finally ready to make its mark in LA. The vegan-powered company known for its unmatched array of cruelty-free footwear, handbags, T-shirts and accessories recently revealed that its NYC boutique will have a Silver Lake sibling come fall 2014.
"We have discussed opening another location for years, but we knew we couldn't do it without help," founders/sisters Erica and Sara Kubersky explain on Facebook. "When our good friends and design team raven + crow studio told us they were making the move to Los Angeles, we first pleaded with them not to go and when that didn't work we immediately thought of them as the people that could help us make MooShoes Los Angeles a reality."
And here they are. MooShoes LA will be located at 3116 Sunset Boulevard, not too far from Dream Collective and Clare Vivier. The brand promises to "continue the tradition of bringing together the vegan and animal rights communities, acting as
both a store and a community event space." Stay tuned for more.
