Here we go! Introducing three more of the amazing designers displaying their creations at the Redress Eco-Fashion show on May 30th, Cobblestone Hall, Downtown Raleigh. This is Redress Raleigh's seventh fashion show and the quality and diversity in each collection seems to get better and better as time goes on. This year's show is definitely not going to disappoint, and the runway previews are just getting us more excited for the 30th! You can catch up on part one and two here and here.
Lisa Stewart designs and handcrafts accessories and home decor featuring Lisa's calligraphic illustrations. She has been designing under Lisa Stewart Designs since 2001 and is thrilled to be a part of the Redress Eco-Fashion show this year.
For her SS14 collection, Lisa is going to have a mature women's and men's collection of handbags and accessories made with leather. The pieces will be perfect for wearing out in the evening and around town in the spring time.
Leopold Designs, a line by Kim Kirchstein, contains beautiful batik designs on silk with a variety of different colors. The surface design of the clothing is where Kirchstein's creativity shows. Leopold Designs' pieces are all hand painted with the mission to make women feel good in each outfit.
The collection this year will focus on simple garments with a little flair to showcase each silk batik. There are also going to be some kids on the Leopold Designs runway - looking adorable in Kirchstein's designs! One of the most anticipated looks in the collection will be a collaboration with Edie Kaye Designs, who rocked the runway last year at Redress. We are so excited to see what Leopold Designs has planned for the show!
We are so happy to have Lisa Hoang on our list of designers for Redress this year. Lisa Hoang is a freshman in the Fashion and Textile Design program at NC State University and a design assistant at Cheryl King Couture, who is collaborating with Hoang on her collection titled "Collective Consciousness" for the Redress Eco-Fashion show.
Following the Redress Raleigh principles, Hoang has reinvented the Hanes T-Shirt into economical and eco-conscious wedding dress separates. The brides can then recycle their ceremony dress into their reception dress, or even repurpose the separates into daywear. Hoang's collection revolutionizes the way a bride sees her wedding dress.
