Your participation and support of Revamped will help to celebrate the beauty when people recycle, reimagine and reinvent fashion and art. Revamped conveys the simple ways that we can have a positive impact on the environment through the creative reuse of our resources. Revamped shows people that there is an environmentally conscience choice in fashion and art.
An expected 400 people will be introduced to simple ways in which you can have a positive impact on the environment. From vintage clothing, sustainable textiles, custom refashioned accessories, and recycled fabrics; Revamped inspires guests to reuse materials waiting to be discarded. We will feature refashioned vintage couture mixed with new developments in eco-textiles. The designers are filling a gap in the fashion industry and capturing an emerging market of consumers that want to make socially responsible choices.
This year, the event has expanded and local artists have been invited to showcase their recycled artwork. Guests will be introduced to a new community of local artists and designers that create with the environment in mind. Artists include Nicole Matta Santos, Carrie Ann Schumacher, Jay Strommen, Maggie Joyce, Charles Heinrich, Tiffany Gholar and Brikena Boci.
Revamped will provide local artists and businesses a way to get involved and support the Chicagoland environmental community.
Our runway show will feature the following designers; Redgi Woods, Imagine Fashions, Rachel Brooks, The Style Cooperative, Alternative Shoes, Corky Couture, and Marta Cebrat-Czernik.
Purchase tickets by May 20, 2011, pre-sale ends at 3:00pm. Visit the event website at www.revampedchicago.com or contact Elizabeth Kossik at 312-795-3740.
