For this year’s show, the non-profit has chosen CAM, the Contemporary Art Museum of Raleigh, as the back drop for their designers’ pieces to be showcased. Redress Raleigh was drawn to the venue not only for its beautiful aesthetic, but for its active presence within the local community. CAM frequently encourages the sharing of creativity and positive relationships, which flows seamlessly into the values that Redress Raleigh strives to uphold as an organization.
The annual fashion show has done more than snag a breathtaking venue, but has made even further strides to better their show and purpose from within as well. As of this year, Redress exists as a non-profit organization and has pushed for a renewed mission that includes a focus on more expansive education for designers and the public alike. Their overall goal is to broaden awareness of sustainable fashion and textiles, while also encouraging public support for the designers who make such products. With this mission, the eco-fashion show is a perfect event to highlight these designers efforts to repurpose, reinvent, and think responsibly in terms of resources and the future of fashion.
As mentioned before, Redress is very dedicated to empowering their featured designers. This has resulted in the non-profit investing in an educational and mentorship program, in additional to the exposure the designers receive from participation in the show. The purpose of this added program is to continue the designer’s exposure and knowledge beyond the reaches of the annual show itself, with intentional efforts to provide designers with further stepping stones and resources that can help their businesses evolve.
During the selection process this year, six talented and diverse designers were picked to participate in the show, as well as the educational program. The designers selected for 2016 include: Ashley Mason, Piper Honigmann, Juliana Fadl, Timothy Cohen, Katina Gad, and Mary Ashlyn Thomas. With many of these participants having been inspired by personal encounters of waste and pollution within our modern world, their passion for sustainability is sure to shine through in some remarkable applications for responsibly-produced resources.

The Redress Raleigh Annual Fashion Show is a one-of-a-kind event that not only showcases beautiful, responsibly-produced fashion in the Southeast, but also fights for a larger call to action. Come out to the 2016 show and support a world where one day eco-fashion will no longer be a high-end “trend” and instead, environmentally responsible actions will be the widely accepted norm.
