Treen understands that “living ethically and sustainably is complicated”, and hence offers “a selection of style must-haves from a carefully selected group of brands that make a positive difference” to helps its customers “create a wardrobe of your dreams without compromising on style.”
The store will stock a range of sustainable vegan fashion brands including the likes of Will’s Vegan Shoes, OhSeven Days, WORON and Armed Angels.
Announcing the grand opening on Instagram, the company said: “NEWS. Since closing our doors to our pop-up back at @spaceatseventeen in August we’ve been holding our breath. We couldn’t be prouder to now say that we have a new home at No. 12, St Stephen Street!
“Join us on Friday 1 November 6-8pm to celebrate and raise a glass (or three!), then come shop in the store from Saturday 2 November 10-6pm, open daily.”
Speaking to Edinburgh Live about her inspiration behind the new vegan venture, Anderson said: “I studied fashion at university and have over eight years experience in the fashion and retail industry opening stores in UK, China and Hong Kong for global brands. I returned to the UK last year to launch Treen.
“My transition to a vegan lifestyle in 2015, after being veggie most of my life, promoted me not only to reassess what I was eating, but also what I was wearing! Treen was born after I struggled to upgrade my wardrobe to match my lifestyle.”
