Next, I will interview Mor Aframian at 4 p.m. Friday. We will be discussing the Redress Raleigh event which takes place Saturday, April 17. Redress Raleigh is an ecologically conscious and forward thinking fashion show that challenges designers to think about impact on the environment in the development of their concept. Redress aims to showcase eco-friendly designers with accessible and innovative collections as well as showing that “green” is in all aspects of life, including fashion. The clothing selected for this show will have a strong emphasis on eco-friendly design. Eco-friendly can be in the form of recycled or remanufactured garments, as well as using eco-friendly fabrics and production processes. The focus of Redress Raleigh is to promote wearable eco-fashion, meaning fabrics and textiles that would be commonly found in clothing articles, rather than non-clothing items such as cardboard, paper, plastic, etc. This year’s show will be held on Saturday, April 17 from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. at the Flander’s Art Gallery, 302 South West Street, Raleigh.
