About

Vilda Magazine: Inspiration for luxe vegan living

Vilda Magazine is the world's first magazine focusing on future fashion – 100% vegan, cruelty-free, defined by material innovation. A forward-thinking, style-driven publication, Vilda is dedicated to inspire and inform those who wish to dress, travel and live more consciously.

We showcase the finest in conscious style free from animal-derived materials, try out the best in cruelty-free beauty and search the world for the most thrilling destinations for conscious travel. Our aim is to inspire compassionate living through elevated fashion, beauty, travel and lifestyle.

Launched as part of the Marie Claire Inspire & Mentor Scheme in late 2013, Vilda Magazine has been a digital project since its inception. We have shot fashion editorials with vegan brands in Copenhagen, London and New York, tried raw food in Milan and Mexican vegan delights in LA, and shopped for organic fashion anywhere from Denmark to Paris. You might have seen us in Marie Claire UK, GLAMOUR Germany, GRAZIA UK or VOGUE Germany’s partner site This is Jane Wayne. But now, it's time for the next step in our journey.

We want to make Vilda a beautiful quarterly print and digital magazine – even richer, fuller, more beautiful and luxurious, to bring you even more inspiration for stylish compassionate living.

Our vision is to create what currently doesn't exist in the magazine landscape: a truly diverse, forward-thinking fashion magazine that is approachable, relatable and 100% vegan. We aim to be a platform that gives a voice to the designers, influencers, activists and changemakers who are putting vegan fashion on the map and being a driving force for change in an industry that is in desperate need of a radical makeover.

This new version of the magazine will introduce readers to new developments in vegan fashion and material innovation - but it will also become a place of diversity and inclusion, a strong voice for feminism and equality, and a space of exploration of the ways veganism intersects with other social justice movements such as human rights, environmental issues, LGBTQIA+, women's rights and more. We won't alter our models' appearances with photo-editing programmes, and we will do our best to commit to true diversity when it comes to ethnicity, age, body types and nationalities. We will work hard on amplifying the voices of vegans, activists and change-makers in less privileged, more marginalised communities, and we will tone down our reliance on newly produced fashion. We will of course still feature editorials and advertorials from our favourite slow fashion brands, but there will be more emphasis on reducing, reusing and recycling. Second-hand fashion will be a huge factor in reducing fashion's impact on the planet, and we will be at the forefront of this shift

Your funding will allow us to...

Reach a wider audience – your backing will give us access to distribution channels that will help bring our work to new readers across the globe. We want to be a pioneering publication that speaks to readers all over the world and is a constant source of inspiration.

Elevate our messaging – your backing will aid in creating content that's high in quality and truly inspiring, which we think vegan and sustainable fashion deserves and needs. We want to give space to creatives, stylists, writers, photographers, designers and other voices that can interpret the message in a way that captivates our readers.

Expand our team – your backing will permit the essential growth of our vibrant, creative team. Vilda's international team is at the core of everything we do. By expanding our network of contributors, we will bring even more voices and perspectives into our content, making for a truly diverse and rich journalistic offering.

Create a quality product – your backing will be crucial in the making of something that, in the digital age, we feel that many people still treasure: a beautiful coffee-table magazine to leaf through, read, love and keep. Which will also be available digitally, of course.

What are our plans for our first print issue?

We plan to have a fantastic first print issue that will be a guide and an inspiration to our readers. Some of our plans include:

  • A location shoot that will highlight Europe's most exciting emerging vegan fashion brands using materials such as cork and Tencel
  • An editorial shoot highlighting diversity in veganism
  • An investigative story into how the fur and leather industries harm workers
  • A beauty shoot showcasing vegan perfume
  • A retrospective story of activism in fashion

...and much more.

What you will receive in return

As thanks for being part of our journey, we've put together an epic list of goodies that we think you will enjoy. The rewards include:

Print and digital versions of the first issue – of course we would love for our backers to be the first readers of the new Vilda. We would love for you to be able to hold in your hands the project that you have contributed to creating.

A brand-new vegan fashion e-book - filled with content that has never been published anywhere else. Consider this your blueprint for creating a durable and stylish ethical wardrobe.

Decorative prints from Vilda photoshoots – working with creatives such as stylists and photographers who dedicate their time and skill to promoting the message of vegan fashion has left us with some beautiful shots, and we would like to offer some of them to lend a touch of cruelty-free style to your home.

Vegan Style by Sascha Camilli – this book is the first publication by Vilda's founder and editor-in-chief, and it's also the first book of its kind: a stylish guide to vegan fashion, beauty, home, travel and so much more.

A personalised vegan style masterclass – Vilda founder Sascha Camilli will spend an hour with you on Skype (or in person, if you are in London or Brighton) to help you find your cruelty-free style and lay the foundation for your new vegan wardrobe.

Backstage access to cover photoshoot – join the team in London for exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the most important shoot of the first print issue. Afterwards, have lunch with the team in a vegan restaurant (our treat).

...and more!

Thank you so much for joining us on our journey

As an independent magazine standing before a brand-new step in our story, we're so grateful for every contribution. Your support means the world to our entire team and will be so significant in the creation of a magazine that is unlike anything that is currently on the newsstands – a publication that is vibrant and aspirational, but still relatable and real. A magazine that is in tune with the ethical concerns of its readers: the new generation of conscious style lovers.

We completely understand that not everyone can support our campaign financially. We would still be grateful for any help you can offer us, such as sharing the campaign on social media and spreading the word!

Thank you – we cannot wait for you to hold the new Vilda Magazine in your hands. Exciting times ahead.


THANK YOU to our videographer Keith Bridle, and also THANK YOU to FAIR Fashion Boutique Brighton for allowing us to shoot our video there!
