Look for Leopold Designs at the Handmade Market, May4th!!!

Look for Leopold Designs at The Handmade Market, May4th!!!

Seriously, one of the top 2 markets in the area.  It’s always a place you want to attend or sell at.  It’s run by a LOVELY group of local crafty ladies, it’s a comfortable environment, well-chosen merchandise, in a cool historic building, and always has a great DJ.

Also………It’s a perfect chance to find something wonderful for MOTHERS DAY!!  (Mothers Day is May 12th.)

Redress Raleigh 2013 was SUCH a blast!!!

Just a few photos from our snapshots and my friend’s iphone pics from the audience…  It was an incredible night.
I can’t thank enough… my models -Jenn, Anna, Jennifer, Mollyann, Megan, Lindsay, Sarah, Reut, Nancy, Emily, & Robin – (I’ll link to them in a separate post soon), my dear friend Kristen of Mood Swing, Melissa Solis of Head 2 Toe, Megan Matheny of Posh The Salon in Durham, the entire Redress Raleigh team…. there are more….
I’m still zooming and totally tuckered out… I will post many more photos and info SOON!

TOMORROW!!!! Redress runway show!!!!!!

I’m SO excited!!  Oh…And still working my derriere off styling/how to dress my models in the sarongs (wrapping/tying), and also still making new pieces for the Marketplace that’s on Sunday! 
Tonight at midnight is the last time to buy your tickets for the Conference during the day Saturday and/or the Fashion Show Saturday night.
Buy them online:  http://redressraleigh.com/

(Just follow the links whether it’s the conference or fashion show you’re buying tickets for)

HUGE thank you’s and kudos to the super cool chick that’s made the jewelry for the runway tomorrow!!!
Mood Swing is Kristen Randall. She’s a Raleigh artist that does the most amazing work. I’d call her style a bit bohemian, but with a vintage touch, using natural materials, crystals, and found objects such as vintage jewelry pieces & buttons, clock keys, & fabric trimmings.
Keep an eye out for these beauties on my models and on me & Kristen tomorrow night!!

Preview from a photoshoot with Side Yard Studios!

So, I’ve had these for 10 days now, but I’ve been sitting on them so as not to give away what you’ll see at the Redress Raleigh Eco-Fashion Show!

But I can’t hold ALL of them in…. here’s a peek at the cool-as-all-get-out photo shoot by Leigh Moose of Side Yard Studios!!

One of the models that day is Rachel Stroud.   She was TRULY mesmerizing to watch move and move with the fabrics out in the breeze.
ImageI’ll show them all of to ya after this weekend!!

Redress Marketplace… it’s looking goooooood!!!

Don’t forget to come by the Redress Marketplace on Sunday, 10-3.

There are some SERIOUSLY wonderful vendors (in addition to Leopold Designs, of course!) that should appeal to anyone and everyone!!
It’s free and open to the public from 10-3 THIS Sunday, at the Raleigh Marriott City Center  (same location as the fashion show Saturday night!).
500 Fayetteville Street, Raleigh.

There’s a HUGE parking garage attached to the hotel, by the way.  Yes, they charge, but I’d rather do that than drive another 30 minutes around finding a spot on the street.  🙂RedressRaleigh_Marketplace2013_Poster

Rehearsal done!! Saturday, here we come!!!

Redress Raleigh Eco-fashion & Textile Conference AND Eco-fashion Show is this weekend!
