London?s First Vegan Footwear And Accessory Shop Opens

Bourgeois Boheme, a UK-based animal-friendly fashion company who have made a name for themselves retailing vegan footwear, accessories and cosmetics online, is now opening London's first vegan fashion retail location. Based at their offices in Richmond, London the shop doors officially open on the 17th May 2008, just ahead of UK National Vegetarian Week.

Bourgeois Boheme, one of the UK?s most well-known online and animal-friendly fashion companies, is opening London?s very first vegan footwear and accessories retail outlet.

On May 17th 2008, just a couple of days ahead of UK National Vegetarian Week, Bourgeois Boheme will celebrate the official opening with an open day at the new location in Richmond, London.

A London-based company, Bourgeois Boheme has since 2003 sourced vegetarian/vegan fashion and cosmetics products from global brands and now also produces its very own Bourgeois Boheme Boutique range of ethical footwear and fashion accessories and is now extending its range to organic and eco-friendly fabrics too.

Known for its quality and stylish vegan footwear and accessories, Bourgeois Boheme is now responding to customer requests for a physical retail location.

Bourgeois Boheme founder and Director, Alicia Lai and has found that 90% of returns from online sales relate to shoe-fitting issues.

Alicia says, ?Our shop is an extension within our office premises, it?s a humble start but it?s offers our customer what they have been asking for and is a first step towards fulfilling our greater dream of having lush and exclusive Bourgeois Boheme boutiques in the world?s fashion capitals?

Without anywhere to shop but online, London vegetarians and vegans have had to either settle for outdated and low-quality styles or travel to the south of the UK where there is another vegan fashion store.

Alicia says, ?Unless you shop online, vegetarian footwear is difficult to find: it?s a dismal choice of either low-quality, cheap and environmentally-challenging shoes or Stella McCartney ? gorgeous fashion no doubt, but very much beyond the pocket of many a style-conscious vegetarian/vegan.?

Its an environment that has served online sales well and, having already built up a dedicated and growing following of online and mail order customers, Bourgeois Boheme is giving shoppers what New York and other fashion capitals around the world gave their consumers years ago ? a stylish home for animal-friendly fashion.

Bruce Friedrich, Vice President at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) says, ?All of us at PETA welcome the news of a Bourgeois Boheme storefront. We enjoy ordering from BoBo online, but we?ll be even more delighted to have a place where we can try on the shoes, examine the bags, and have a compassionate shopping experience.?

Visitors will be able to buy Bourgeois-Boheme?s exclusive labelled styles as well as ethically sourced products from other companies; not only footwear, but also bags, wallets and belts for women and men, and cosmetics.

Now customers can find a perfect fit in every sense- true to their size, philosophy, style and ethics.

Refreshments and appetisers will be served.
