Our Guiding Light

LOA, above all, is a vegan and eco-friendly brand. If any practice puts those two things on the back burner or goes against them we will not do it.

History

Lights of All (LOA) is a vegan and eco-friendly clothing label based out of Montreal, Canada. Our core focus is to offer timeless clothing that will last in any wardrobe, while having a positive impact on the world. There is an outdated idea that eco-friendly or vegan clothing cannot be cool or is intrinsically opposed to the fashion industry. We are here to show you that fashion can be environmentally and animal conscious. Harm toward our planet and the animals that inhabit it is not a prerequisite to looking beautiful. 

The name Lights of All is a nod to the essence of life that all living things have. From blades of grass, to pigs and humans, LOA represents our dedication to protecting, respecting and igniting those lights. This means that we ensure our products are made without the use of harmful chemicals, no animal by-products, and are made in such a way that no human is taken advantage of or disrespected. 

About the Designer

LOA is owned and designed by Katia Hagen. She started her path to veganism in 2008 at the age of 16. She studied Fashion Design at Lasalle College, in Montreal and then went on to study Philosophy and Religious studies in New York at Eugene Lang, The New School for Liberal Arts.

During her time in New York, Katia interned at Peter Som, Marchesa and Jason Wu. Building her own brand was never part of her plan, but while working with leathers and wools at her internships, she realized she could not separate her work from her vegan ideals, and thus decided to launch her own vegan brand.
