Jo-Anne Vernay is a line of luxury vegan shoes made of pineapple leaf fibre that merges sustainability with style. Founded by sustainable stylist and creative director Dyandra Raye, this line was born after years of sketching shoes mixed with a new found vegan lifestyle.
Named after her mother and fashion inspiration Jo-Anne, and late Aunt Vernay who vowed to buy her shoes one day, Jo-Anne Vernay holds a dear place in the founders heart.
After noticing a void in the market when shopping for herself and other conscious clients for affordable luxury vegan shoes, Jo-Anne Vernay was born. Made of pineapple skin and other sustainable materials like organic cotton and ultra suede, this shoe is made to bring sustainability to the forefront of the fashion industry. Using her mother’s eye for detail and quality plus her aunt’s bold personality and aura, Jo-Anne Vernay will fill the void of fashionable vegan footwear worldwide!
With unity always in mind, also a symbol seen in designs through a circular ball detail, we work with the best of the best to bring you the stylish vegan shoes that you are proud to wear. Designed in Brooklyn and Made in Italy, Jo-Anne Vernay is slow fashion, valuing quality over quantity. Each style is offered in limited quantities, making room for more original designs. Jo-Anne Vernay has collaborated with Samsung to help bring our soft launch to consumers and raised funding through Kiva Zip to continue growing. Thank you for being a Jo-Anne Vernay follower and customer, we can't wait to release the S/S 2020 styles!
