Dear Northern California Community Members-
The Carr Fire continues to be a devastating presence in our community. We recognize the far reaching effects it is having on local people, businesses, and organizations. The current atmosphere of disaster has caused us to take pause and carefully consider how we can contribute to the rebuilding of Redding and the surrounding areas.
After much consideration and deliberation, we have made the decision to move forward with Redding Fashion Week. You may be wondering how a fashion week can help to rebuild a community affected by disaster. We believe that we can support the economic vitality of our local fashion industry-related business community by creating events designed to highlight their value, strengths, and relevancy. Located in the Redding Cultural District, we are committed to showcasing the creative talent in the Northstate. One of our goals is to to show the strength and resiliency of its citizens, and creating positive media attention for the Redding area.
We know that Redding Fashion Week is just one piece in a giant puzzle of recovery in the wake of this debilitating fire. One of our outcomes for this Fashion Week is to establish a scholarship fund for children and adults who need financial support in order to participate in the educational programming that we offer in sewing, fashion design, and business. In addition, we will create an Emerging Fashion Designer Fund to support two individuals to start a fashion collection and to provide free makerspace for one year. We hope to make a sustainable impact on the future of making.
This week of events is partially funded by a micro-grant from the Redding Cultural District, Redding Bank of Commerce, Carousel Boutique, and will highlight local creatives in the fashion industry north of Sacramento.
