Emerging Designers Showcase is a runway show put on by MN FASHION and this spring they have chosen Rachel Roff’s fashion label, deLange designs to be featured. Rachel is a member of the Sol Inspiration’s Board, works in media production and is an amazingly conscious designer with big aspirations. It was our pleasure to introduce Rachel to the Sol Inspirations followers by blog last summer and then last fall we even previewed her collection for Envision. Rachel’s collections aren’t entirely organic cotton, or fair trade textiles, cost is always an obstacle for independent designers but Rachel is always challenging herself to do what she can and keep making progress.

“Being around Sol Inspirations has inspired me to push it further in terms of using recycled fabrics… and it’s made for a more interesting collection I think. The lace and sheer fabrics are recycled, the gemetric pattern and brown and cream cuff are made from remnants of other collections that I’ve rediscovered to make something new.”

We encourage everyone to get out to Honey Mpls tonight and support all of the designers, there is a suggested $5 donation but this is one of the most affordable events of the week.
