The auction is the culmination of WYWV’s first community collaboration project which called for followers on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram to submit their wishes for fashion items that they wish were available in vegan friendly materials. The most popular trends were used as the inspiration for the creation of the handbags being auctioned off starting Friday.
Proceeds from the auction will be donated to Mercy For Animals, an organization that works to create a society where all animals are treated with the compassion and respect they so rightfully deserve.
The auction will be held exclusively online through eBay.com. Those who sign up for the WYWV mailing list at http://www.wishyouwerevegan.com/

Krže Studio (pronounced kâr¢zhĕ, the traditional spelling of Leila’s last name) is the realization of footwear designer Leila Tamar Kerze’s conviction: that contemporary, forward fashion is also forward thinking in its materials and production. Krže Studio specializes in contrasting elements within design, such as mixing street culture with high society, industrial with ethereal aesthetics, and traditional cultures with the vitality of today’s modernity. The collection debut is targeted for Fall 2013.
