The Vegan Visionary Behind Giulia & Romeo

At the heart of Giulia & Romeo is its founder, Daniela Brunner, whose passion for animal rights and sustainable living sparked the inception of the brand. She set out to prove that style doesn't have to come at the expense of ethics.

“The heart of my business philosophy is the coexistence of luxurious aesthetics and ethical, sustainable consumption,” says Brunner.

Drawing inspiration from German heritage and the timeless allure of classic fashion, every piece from Giulia & Romeo is infused with sophistication and charm. From comfortable jackets to luxurious, cruelty-free silk-and-sequin dresses, the collections exude a sense of effortless glamor that transcends fleeting trends. “I create everything for myself,” says Brunner. “I have to wear and test every single piece before it finally goes to the collection.”

Brunner’s personal love for animals and need to protect them from the cruelties that tend to face them in the fashion industry was what inspired the creation of this brand. “When I became vegan while pregnant with my son, Romeo, my whole attitude changed concerning fashion,” says Brunner. In 2017, she decided to create Giulia & Romeo — an exclusive vegan fashion label — and donate all the earnings to animal welfare.

Since the birth of her son, the brand has grown and so has her family. She has since welcomed twin girls, one of whom is named Giulia, bringing Giulia & Romeo together in both her home, heart, and her growing empire.

Craftsmanship With Compassion

What sets Giulia & Romeo apart is its unwavering commitment to quality and ethics. Each garment is meticulously crafted using only the finest vegan materials, sourced with sustainability in mind. From organic cotton to innovative plant-based fabrics, every choice reflects a dedication to minimizing environmental impact without compromising on style. Brunner creates clothes that are stylish enough for her to wear and tests every single piece of clothing before it ever goes into the collection.

Moreover, Brunner takes pride in ensuring fair labor practices throughout the supply chain. By partnering with ethical manufacturers and artisans, she upholds values of social responsibility, creating not just fashion but a positive impact on communities worldwide.

Brunner shares, “I would like to open up a new perspective with my fashion and regard the protection of animals and the environment as a requirement for everything we do.”

The brand has been recognized and rewarded by PETA, one of the biggest animal rights organizations, with the Fashion Award. The PETA Fashion Award celebrates the labels, style icons, and forward-thinking, animal-friendly designers that have made big statements for animals in 2023.
