OUR TEAM

 

Beth Stewart

Co-Founder and Executive Director

Currently serving as Executive Director of Redress Raleigh, Beth Stewart engages with people to create new mindsets about fashion and encourages them to #GiveADamn through their own personal style. As a passionate advocate for a more environmentally and ethically minded fashion and textiles industry, she loves finding new ecochic designers to support and questioning the status quo of apparel production.

A strong believer that we all have a responsibility to make the world a better place, she also volunteers with organizations working with individuals with special needs or helping alleviate hunger.


Carrie Misenheimer

Graphic Designer

Carrie Misenheimer came on board as graphic designer before the first Redress fashion show in 2009, and is proud to be part of a community that gives a damn about responsible design in North Carolina.

After studying graphic design at N.C. State, Carrie rediscovered her inner nerd and returned for a master's in science & tech communication.

By day, Carrie is an environmental science writer with EPA's Office of Research and Development. In her off hours, you'll find her scoping new sushi spots and chasing squirrels with her rescue pup, Daisy. 


Albert Dinh joined Redress Raleigh with a passion to see fashion impact the world and individuals' lives in a loving way.

While acquiring his Accounting degree at NC State, he pinpointed his love for fashion after experimenting with other creative mediums. This passion has driven him to learn fashion design on his own while studying and relating fashion business with his management studies.

In the future, Albert hopes to see a growing market in fashion catering towards the love and comfort of consumers and those working in the industry. He looks forward to continually influencing the direction to this future.
