Whew! I have been catching up with semi-cleaning the house, running errands, and taking naps since the Redress Raleigh weekend…. After designing for the Eco-Fashion Show on Friday, May 30, and attending the wildly-interesting and fun Redress Eco Fashion & Textiles Conference (EFTC) the next day!!
Elizabeth Galecke of Elizabeth Galecke Photography took these amazing photos. She’s not only an incredible photographer, she’s a dear friend.
Same goes for Kristen Randall of Mood Swing, who made the naturally beautiful jewelry for the show!
My SPECTACULAR (and super sweet!) models are (left to right):
Mollyann Russell, Nancy Tom, Lizza Igoe, Sarah Tector, Laura Wyker, Charla Hodges, Borys K. is standing in front of me, Lindsay K. Saunders, Madeline T., Rae S., Caitlin Palmieri, Colleen Ann Guest, and Emmie Banks
I’m thrilled and honored to, again, be part of the Redress Raleigh Eco-Fashion Show!!! It’s a fun show, organized by the wonderful ladies of Redress Raleigh, and has a great following!
It will be at Cobblestone Hall at City Market in downtown Raleigh, May 30. There will also be a marketplace there.
To show you just a glimpse of what has inspired me for this upcoming collection…
My friend, Robin Thomas, recently took this gorgeous and inspiring photo of her view during a plane flight up north.
I’m always in awe of the color and pattern that presents itself in nature, whether it is a great big view such as this one, or the teeny-tiniest flower in among the moss. This is what moves me.
This video covers the Conference as well as the Eco-Fashion Show!
There are lots of peeks at Leopold Designs work, but I have to say, I’m tickled that I’m the closing image (worn by Anna Sterlina) for the video… hehe!! 🙂

NOT TO MISS:
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!!
And remember, too, there’s a conference you might want to attend in addition to the Eco-Fashion Show!!
Come see Leopold Designs and a dozen other designers walk the runway on March 23rd!!
Get your ticket asap!! They sell out every year!!
