If you’re a vegan bride planning her wedding, you already know a thing or two about belonging to a specific ‘niche’ market. If you’re also a lover of all things Vintage, you’re even in a more complicated situation because the majority of vintage fashion attire and accessories are not vegan friendly. This is especially true when looking for shoes… did you ever find yourself  in a thrift store’s footwear section and walking out to an unpleasant leather odor? Don’t despair, we just found the perfect fit for your vegan feet!

Los Angeles based (but shipping worldwide) B.A.I.T. Footwear is an independent women-owned and women inspired vegan shoe brand.  B.A.I.T.  specializes in vintage styles with a modern flair, with memory foam insoles & always on a heel of comfortable height. Their Bridal Collection comes in a wide array of colorful styles perfect for brides & bridesmaids alike.

B.A.I.T. team reached us with a statement.

“Our mission is simple; create beautiful affordable, well-made, stylish vegan shoes for contemporaries. With a general inclination towards yesteryear esthetics, our collection is inspired by popular silhouettes derived from the 1930’s-to the 1970s, creating classically captivating styles that will inspire confidence in the wearer. 
.
Modern advancements in alternative vegan materials cemented the belief that beautiful products could be achieved without harm. Early in her career, our founder Julie Kim experienced the gritty aspects of the leather shoe industry & refused to contribute to fast fashion wastefulness. 
.
We manufacture our shoes by hand & create our designs on a small scale. We esteem uniqueness & many of our styles are retired after the collection is out of stock.”

An incurable enthusiast and independent spirit since she could remember (her childhood heroines were Pippi Longstockings and Katharine Hepburn) Daniela Degrassi found her creative outlet as a lifestyle photographer, working mainly in Northern California. Currently splitting her time between SF Bay Area and her native Italy to continue to be her autistic sister’s primary caregiver. Vegan since 2014, she found a perfect way to carry her message of compassion while celebrating her love for the wedding industry launching The Kind Bride in February 2018.
