Sans Beast was created by Cathryn Wills, after working in Australia fashion retail for nearly 30 years, with over a decade of that chapter spent living and breathing the world of leather handbags. Wills progressively recognised a disconnect between her professional role and her ethical stance on animal welfare and the environment. One thing led to another in 2016 - a resignation from corporate life, some time taken to consider next steps, the adoption of a plant based diet....and 2 years later, Sans Beast launched. The brand launched at VAMFF in March 2018, and have fast established a loyal following of style seeking, animal loving aficionados.
The studio + HQ is in Kensington, Victoria (Australia).
