I’m getting really excited for the upcoming Spring/Summer 2014 fashion week which happens the second week of September in NYC. Brave GentleMan‘s SS2014 collection is pretty awesome, made in NYC with sustainable, organic and vegan textiles, and I couldn’t resist trying on one of my creations in sustainable domestic linen and snapping a pic for Instagram. Consider this a sneak peek!

• Another film to keep an eye out for this fall is Mark Devries’ debut, “Speciesism: The Movie“. Mercy For Animals interviewed Devries on their blog. Read the interview here, and watch the trailer:

• There’s a great interview with Steve-O on the latest Our Hen House podcast: Steve_BW_blktee

Learn why your angry comments to Steve-O changed him forever.
