Urban Expressions, founded by two high school friends Farbod Shakouri and Kyle Vojdani in 2005, creates luxury vegan leather goods. After graduating from college, these two buddies combined their strong fashion sense, entrepreneurial spirit, and desire to create a better world to create the eco-aware line of handbags and clutches. Although the two budding visionaries were green to the fashion industry, it did not discourage their climbing progress or their green agenda. Today Urban Expressions is supported by both Vegan.org and PETA and offers the model street fashion lover a handbag of goodies. While wearing her Urban Expressions handbag, she is taking a stand against animal brutality and joining a healthy, trendy, forward-thinking group.
