Who's Who in Fashion and Textiles

  • Trophy Brewing Tap and Table 225 South Wilmington Street Raleigh, NC, 27601 United States (map)

Join us on Wednesday, April 25th from 6:30-8:30pm as we launch our new “Who’s Who” event series!

Coinciding with Fashion Revolution Week, this series will shine a light on movers-and-shakers in fashion and textiles related fields — introducing you to new brands, ideas and connections with a sustainable focus. Fashion Revolution Week marks the anniversary of the 2013 Rana Plaza disaster and is a week of reflection, activism, and focus on creating positive change in the fashion industry. This first Who's Who event will introduce you to the ideas behind the Fashion Revolution movement and how Redress Raleigh is manifesting these ideas locally to revolutionize fashion and textiles.

We'll enjoy tasty snacks upstairs in the mezzanine at Trophy Tap + Table while hearing from three local speakers:

  • Kendra Leonard | Owner of Art of Style boutique
  • Lisbeth Arias | Owner of emerging fair-trade brand Descalza
  • Amanda Astor | Community Education Specialist for the City of Raleigh Solid Waste department, who will explain their new curbside textile recycling program.

Your $15 ticket includes light appetizers in addition to admission to the event. A cash bar will be available as well as plenty of time for Q&A and socializing.
