About Me

My photo
Style Destino is my personal style space bout cruelty-free and vegetarian style. Fashion is not above someone's life and it is irresponsible when someone makes a fashion choice that involves taking a poor animal's life. I believe in style that has a conscience. We are in 21st century where technology has advanced immensely, there are myriad options available and any person with a desire can make things happen. So it is sheer selfishness and irresponsible behaviour when people make unethical fashion choices. Through StyleDestino I share everything cruelty-free and ethical in my style. I do not use any handbags, shoes or accessories made from leather (animal skin), the make-up I use is also vegetarian and cruelty free. Luxury and compassion can coexist stylishly and Style Destino is an attempt to prove just that. Vegan fashion is not about dowdy clothes, cheap bags, or tawdry shoes. I can just easily be vegan and trot in my Olsen heels, sporting a Stella McCartney luxurious vegan handbag while showing off my red lips painted with OCC lip tar!! I travel the world around and never find dearth of stylish, high quality vegetarian fashion.

Sunglasses and Sustainability - Eco-friendly Sunglasses To Love

Sunglasses and Sustainability - Eco-friendly Sunglasses To Love

  I have to admit, I am a sucker for sunglasses. Sunglasses are one of the most versatile accessories - we all have them and love them. I am guilty of having over a dozen pairs, some from before I started my sustainable journey and a few after. A good pair of sunnies can totally change the vibe of an outfit instantly upgrading it from drab to fab. Wouldn't you agree?  It's a well-known fact that vast areas in our oceans are literally filling up with plastic. Everything we buy is either wrapped in plastic or made from plastic or actually both. Sunglasses are no exception. I've been vocal about the plastic problem in our wardrobes . However, most of that conversation has always been about the clothes.  Have you ever thought about what are your eyewear made of and what are they packaged in? Yup, you guessed it right. The answer is plastic.  Most of the eyewear in the market, even from luxury brands, are crafted from plastic and materials that harm the environment. These materi

Too Many Clothes & Nothing To Wear? Time to Inculcate Sustainable Fashion Habits

Too Many Clothes & Nothing To Wear? Time to Inculcate Sustainable Fashion Habits

Too many clothes and nothing to wear? This is a battle fought by most of us nearly every day of our lives. The compelling habit of shopping is too hard to resist. Easy access to cheap clothing {fast fashion}, coupled with irresistible deals (think discount codes, free shipping with free returns) makes things worse. The temptation even leads us into buying things we don't need. Result? Our wardrobes are bursting with clothes, expensive real estate is wasted on cheap fashion items, we have piles of things with the tags still on..... and a planet that's suffering. The abundance of fast fashion has created an environmental and social justice crisis. We have a serious problem of rising landfills due to textile waste (where do you think all your clothes go when you discard them?), unavailability of clean water and clean air, and rising pollution. Of course, there are other issues. Fast fashion = low quality, cheap clothing, but someone is paying the cost for us. Yes, I mean t

What About Plastic In Your Clothing | ACE The Sustainable Wardrobe

What About Plastic In Your Clothing | ACE The Sustainable Wardrobe

Abuse of plastic is one of the biggest problems our generation is facing.  The problem is not the plastic, its the way we are irresponsibly using the material.  Single-use plastic - the plastic that we only use once and throw away forgetting that it will outlive your generation and next's, is one of the major problems. While we have started being more mindful about single-use plastic use like plastic bottles, plastic straws, food that comes in plastic-packaging, we pay little heed to the plastic in our clothes and wardrobes. And I am not talking about the plastic packaging. Did you know 65% of clothing produced worldwide is made from plastic? From your gorgeous flowy dress, sexy swimsuits, and underwear (yes even that!) to your stylish vegan heels & chic handbag everything has plastic. Surprised?  The problem is the when these garments are washed, they shed and release thousands of tiny, unseen microplastics (or microfibers) into the oceans, consumed by sea creatu

Gucci Launches Vegan Sneakers in its First Ever Sustainable Collection Off The Grid

Gucci Launches Vegan Sneakers in its First Ever Sustainable Collection Off The Grid

Luxury fashion lovers rejoice because Gucci has just dropped a collection featuring vegan sneakers made entirely from eco-friendly materials.  "Sustainability" is the new-buzzword in the fashion industry. Until recently, it was only the {often criticized} fast-fashion houses that launched had their own dedicated sustainable fashion lines. However, now the trend has caught up in the luxury fashion world. After Burberry, guess who just dropped an entire sustainable collection? Italian luxury fashion house Gucci launched its first ever sustainable fashion collection Off The Grid, designed by creative director Alessandro Michele. A few years ago, who would have thought that sustainability would become the mantra for the luxury fashion house Gucci? Fast forward 2020, not only is Gucci showing that sustainability is indeed the future of fashion and has launched an entirely sustainable collection, but has even nixed all animal products from some of the pieces in it.  &

Your Complete Guide to Sustainable Fashion in Dubai

Your Complete Guide to Sustainable Fashion in Dubai

Last updated: 25th June 2020 ‘ Sustainable fashion ’ aren’t just buzzwords but its the need of the hour and the future of fashion. We are consciously damaging our planet and it turns out a lot of it has to do with the way we produce and consume things. How? In case you didn’t know already, fashion is the second most polluting industry in the world.  The good thing is, we are living in interesting times where technology and innovation have given us access to materials that we never thought possible. However, at the same time, consumerism and mass production is damaging our planet and exploiting the people involved in making the beautiful clothing and accessories we wear. It is time to give some thought to how our fashion choices affect the lives of so many people and our planet and start making a change. The exploitation of labor has been going on for decades, but after the Rana Plaza collapse in Bangladesh, on 24th April 2013, the dark side of the fashion industry finally ca

This Alexandra K Vegan Handbag is Made From Apples

This Alexandra K Vegan Handbag is Made From Apples

We've heard of cork leather, then came pineapple leather (aka Pinatex) and now let me introduce you to Apple Leather. Yes, a leather-like material made from apples - no kidding!  In fact, I have a  vegan handbag  in my wardrobe made from apple leather.   Every time I tell someone my handbag is made from leather, their reaction starts with utter disbelief slowly turning into surprise and awe. When you touch this bag, from Polish brand Alexandra K, it's hard to tell it is not real leather because it looks and feels like one. When Alexandra Kościkiewicz launched her eponymous handbag line in 2014, the goal was to offer luxurious, timeless cruelty-free accessories that were at par{or better} in terms of quality but was more accessibly priced than the typical, 4-figure designer handbag. Fast-forward 2020, we can see she definitely attained her goal. Her line of elegant and chic bags not only look stylish but are really well-made.  Alexandra uses a variety of vegan leather materials

Miomojo: The Sustainable Italian Brand That Makes Cool Vegan Bags & Accessories

Leather's environmental impact is often misplaced. If you thought that leather is better than its synthetic alternatives because it is a “natural” material that will eventually decompose, think again. Every leather item in your wardrobe not only comes with cruelty but also bears a hefty price-tag for the planet. The livestock industry is responsible for nearly 15% of human-induced greenhouse gas emissions and contributes significantly to deforestation. People often forget how toxic the leather tanning process could be for the planet and workers. An animal decomposes when it’s natural. However, for the leather material to last, the animal skin undergoes a lot of chemical treatments, after which it isn’t going to decompose in your wardrobe. These workers who process leather are often victims of deadly diseases, respiratory illness, and skin conditions due to exposure to toxic chemicals. Animal cruelty, usage of chemicals, cutting down of rainforests and fires to clear forests f

#PayUp Fashion Industry To Your Garment Workers

#PayUp Fashion Industry To Your Garment Workers

“#PAYUP FASHION INDUSTRY” In times of crisis, it is the most vulnerable people in society who suffer the most impact. This is the situation currently for the millions of workers in the fashion industry who make our clothes, shoes, bags, etc, most of them women. Irony is that, in this time of need, the fashion industry is failing its workers. According to Fashion Revolution, its common practice in fashion industry for brands to pay their suppliers months after delivery. So suppliers pay upfront for the materials used to make products, incurring cost while waiting for incoming payments. Now, with the chaos created by the corona virus pandemic major fashion brands are cancelling orders & stopping payments, shirking responsibility towards its global supply chain, even when the work has already been done. Of course, even the brands are in crisis but they can’t shift the financial burden onto the supply chain, especially when most have reported hundreds of millions of dollars (so

What I think About My Vegan Dr. Martens Sandals

What I think About My Vegan Dr. Martens Sandals

British iconic footwear brand, created by a German doctor, Dr. Martens is famous for their chunky boots, which have evolved from strictly workwear to punk must-haves to fashion-girl staples. Since 1940s Dr. Martens only made footwear cut from leather. But with the rise in veganism and growing demand for leather-free products, Dr. Martens finally dropped their first vegan collection in 2011. The collection comprised of two of its most iconic styles - the 8 eye boot and the 3 eye shoe. Ever since its launch, the sales of vegan Dr. Martens boots have sky rocketed and the brand has introduced various new styles and colors to its animal-free collection. While Dr. Martens cult combat boots with tough leather upper, air-cushioned sole, and yellow stitching are what the brand is most known for, they are so much more. Docs are also available in a wide range of styles available from shoes to sandals that all have an edge that is distinctively Dr. Martens. On one of my trips to San Franci
