Leather alternatives

The tattoo artist and makeup mogul said she is currently looking at innovative leather substitutes.

"I'm not interested in looking at cheap plastics," Von D told media outlet Racked

"We're looking at all these innovative, different leather substitutes that are made out of mushroom and pineapple, and they're actually great for the environment and look equal to, if not better, than leather."

The 35-year-old star previously shared a sneak peek of the shoes on social media, showing off unique heels in sculpted, pointed shapes.
