A more proper Redress recap!

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!

Emily Kirchem of Edie Kaye collaborated on the final coral-motif dress!!

Not sure how to re-blog a friend’s Tumblr blog…. but….

Here ya go.  I think the world of this chick, and she’s done wonders for my designing motivation….
Margo of Rocket Betty makes ahhhhh-mazing new dresses from old dresses — repurposing at its most FAB. 
She attended the Redress Eco-fashion Show, and fell in love with one particular sarong I made… one for the finale look of the show. 
Here is her blog post on this….
