Redress connects and champions eco-conscious designers and companies through event planning, marketing, and an active membership network.
We hope to excite people and encourage them to take action in their own lives by actively thinking about their purchasing decisions and providing them access to amazing eco-designers.
Redress envisions a world where eco-fashion is no longer a high-end ‘trend’ or a mass-market greenwash, but rather an accessible option to most people. It is our goal to be a catalyst for change within the mainstream fashion and textiles industry, making it more environmentally and socially responsible.
Beth Stewart has a passion to catalyze ethical and environmental consciousness within the fashion and textiles industry. Stewart’s varied background has nurtured her knowledge of event planning as well as sustainability in a variety of fields. She received an undergraduate degree in Architecture and a Masters in Textiles from NC State University and has leadership experience in both mainstream retail and non-profits. She has spent the past year and a half honing her entrepreneurial and social media skills as the Strategic Director of Redress Raleigh. She is able to stay grounded by maintaining her volunteer work with Helping Horse Therapeutic Riding Program, horseback riding lessons for children with special needs.
Throughout both her undergraduate and graduate studies, Aframian worked with digital textile printing, knit design, and seamless knitting, involving projects with the Carolina Ballet, TC2, Spoonflower, Klaud and Raleigh Denim. Over the past two years, Aframian has been living her vision and executing her mission—to re-energize and rebuild an eco-forward fashion & textiles industry in the southeast United States.
Designer Jamie Powell creates a line of reconstructed vintage and eco-friendly clothing under the brand Seven Sages. Her items incorporate vintage, recycled, or eco-friendly fabrics and production processes. Jamie also works at Spoonflower, a custom fabric printing company based in Durham. When she's not busy working you can find her in a thrift store, eating sushi, or watching a documentary about just about anything.
As a proud N.C. native, Carrie Misenheimer was excited to be part of a team that encouraged local innovation with a global attitude. Redress was a perfect fit, and Carrie came on as graphic designer before the first fashion show in 2009.
After studying at N.C. State’s College of Design, Carrie worked briefly with the Boston Children’s Museum and Boston Museum of Science before returning to Raleigh as a freelance designer. She's currently back at N.C. State for a master's in communication.
In her off hours, Carrie loves finding new sushi spots and hangin' with her rescue pup, Daisy.
