Beauty shouldn't come at the expense of animals. That's the message behind Cruelty-Free International's campaigns, and we couldn't agree more. The organization's latest project -- a collection of T-shirts designed by UK artists -- was created for the fall fashion season, and our favorite comes courtesy of London-based illustrator Katie Edwards.
"I thought [Cruelty-Free International] would be a great charity to work with, and I enjoyed the challenge of delivering a difficult message," Katie told us of her stylish rabbit print with a straight-forward message, "Stop Testing Cosmetics On Animals."
She noted that many of her other works incorporate subtler advocacy themes. "I have always had a love for animals… Animals often make an appearance in my illustrations because they hold strong metaphorical representation," she said. "Art and illustration is a dramatic way to convey strong messages such as animal cruelty."
Katie's T-shirt design for Cruelty-Free International is one of seven, all available for men and women for a limited time. Profits will be donated to campaigns against cosmetic testing on animals. Get yours here.
