At Jo-Anne Vernay we believe that it’s possible to merge sustainability with style through our luxury vegan footwear made from fruit. Our pineapple leaf fibre shoes are designed to cater to you and the planet, made from fabric free of harmful materials like polyurethane. Our founder Dyandra Raye is driven by her family roots, using our name to pay homage to her inspirational mother Jo-Anne and supportive late aunt Vernay. Ethically manufactured, uniquely designed, and crafted by Italian artisans, our "slow fashion, female & black owned, sustainable shoe line" is designed to help you live life in style, consciously.


Lightweight, durable, and PETA approved; this innovative fabric is changing the way we think about leather.

The truth is that I LOVED them when I first saw @dyandraraye wearing the sample. Without even trying, I found myself completely tuned into the process of creating @joannevernay so when the opportunity to pre-order came a few months ago, I JUMPED!

My first pair arrived and they are beautiful and very well made. I can't wait to have somewhere to wear them.
