The REDRESS Fashion Show

This year's Redress Fashion Show, coming Aug. 18, features the work of independent designers including 700 Rivers, designer of this ensemble. Hair and makeup by Twisted Scizzors of Cary.

A movement is underway to “redress” the Triangle, from the inside out … and you’re invited!

Changing the way we think about fashion — and create it — is the work of Redress Raleigh, a nonprofit educating people on the impact of their buying decisions, in part through the annual Redress Fashion Show highlighting responsibly-produced apparel.

Cary Magazine is a proud sponsor of the event, for a second year.

This year’s fashion show will feature the works of seven designer teams offering accessible, innovative collections for children and adults, all emphasizing that “green” is in.

“All of us wear clothing, and we’re making a choice every time we purchase that apparel,” said Redress Executive Director Beth Stewart. “Most people have a complete disconnect with how their clothing is produced. They have no idea who made it or what it’s made from. We are actively working to change people’s mindsets about what fashion is.”

The collections selected for the 2017 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.

Tickets are $35 for general admission, and $70 for front row. Get all the info at
