The Redress Fashion Show organizers announced August 10, 2016, that their Raleigh fashion show tickets are 75% sold. To come and watch the show, people are urged to get tickets now for this eco-conscious event.

The annual Redress Fashion Show is a one-of-a-kind event spotlighting conscious and responsibly-produced fashion in the Southeast.  The show puts emerging designers in front of leaders in the fashion and textiles industry, as well as hundreds of receptive attendees. Designers featured in the fashion show can expect to elevate their brands to the next level.

The 2016 fashion show is August 19, 2016, at CAM Raleigh, 409 W Martin Street, in Raleigh NC.

The Redress Fashion Show highlights designers with accessible, innovative collections and emphasizes that “green” is in all aspects of life, including fashion. Collections selected for the show have a strong emphasis on responsible design, including recycled, upcycled, or remanufactured pieces; eco-friendly fabrics and/or sustainable production processes (such as no-waste pattern making or natural dyes); and/or a domestic supply chain.

The six selected designers for 2016 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.

In addition to being shown on the runway, the exhibition will include a chance to meet each designer and see their innovative designs up close.

A cocktail hour — with live Jazz by Community Music School in Raleigh– is scheduled for 7-8pm, followed by the fashion show at 8pm. Then, after the show meet this year’s fashion designers and check out an Exhibition featuring pieces from the runway. Hors d’oeurves and cocktails will be served.

CAM Raleigh is hosting the fashion show. According to their website, “CAM Raleigh seeks to curate the most contemporary works of art and design possible—those still emerging, growing, and living. We hope to spark new thinking by creating ever-changing experiences that explore what’s now and nearing.”

All proceeds from the show go to Redress Raleigh, covering production costs and funding their year-rold social and educational event to help grow the market for responsible fashion.

Redress Raleigh Fashion Show tickets are $25 for general admission, or $50 for the front row. Redress 2016 Fashion Show Tickets are available here.
