Redress Fashion Show Long Description

Intent on launching the next wave of independent fashion designers, Redress Raleigh believes that fashion is for all, and that style is one of the most fascinating forms of self expression. This year marks a new beginning for Redress, as it focuses more closely on increasing business for all partners along the fashion and textiles supply chain. The Redress Raleigh Fashion Show is a one-of-a-kind, annual event spotlighting responsibly-produced fashion created by emerging designers.

More info on our designers and their collections is online here. As part of this program, they have been paired with a mentor in the textiles industry and are attending sessions we created to help them further develop their business skills. The fashion show is a celebration of completion of the program and a chance for them to find potential future clients as well as continuing to emphasize that sustainable fashion is wearable, innovative, and accessible.

What is Redress Raleigh?

Creating a New Hub for Eco-Conscious Designers: Raleigh, NC

The fashion and textiles industry continues to create negative impacts on the environment and humanity. There is a growing movement to address these impacts with action-oriented solutions and the USA can be a leader in this evolution.

The annual Redress Fashion Show is a one-of-a-kind event spotlighting responsibly-produced fashion in the Southeast. The event happens August 19th at CAM Raleigh, 409 W. Martin St, in Raleigh, NC. Intent on launching the next wave of eco-conscious designers, Redress' show includes a program for the designers with insights and knowledge from experts in the field - from the design phase through what happens after you launch your fashion line.

The six selected designers this year include many different aspects of responsibly-produced goods - from fair trade to natural dyes to domestic production to upcycling textile remnants to digital textile printing. Read more about this year's class here. The Redress Fashion Show highlights designers with accessible, innovative collections and emphasizes that “green” is in all aspects of life, including fashion.

Emerging designers and fashion students today are full of creativity and passion but can be intimidated by the highly-competitive and corporate world of the fashion and textiles industry. They are finding more creative ways to be ecochic but often lack the resources, knowledge, or connections to grow their businesses. To keep empowering future designers and encourage innovation, it is important to provide them with support and knowledge about the realities of the current fashion and textiles industry.

The annual Redress Fashion Show is a one-of-a-kind event spotlighting responsibly-produced fashion in the Southeast. The event happens August 19th at CAM Raleigh, 409 W. Martin St, in Raleigh, NC, and this year the designers participated in a summer-long educational and mentorship program focused on building their business skills such as understanding the step-by-step process of product design, marketing your brand while on a limited budget, and how to deliver value and differentiate your goods so that your company stands out. 

The fashion show will be a celebration of their completion of the program and a chance to be the first to see their innovative collections. See what past designers have to say about their Redress experience. The show has been featured in such publications / media outlets as IndyWeek, News and Observer, Ecotextile News, My Carolina Today, Oak City Hustle, Walter Magazine, Triangle Downtowner, and Ethical Fashion Forum. Designers featured in the fashion show can expect to elevate their brands to the next level, and attendees can expected to be impressed by the level of talent and creativity in fashion in the South.
