Next spring’s annual Color Me Goodwill upcycled fashion show will feature collections by local designers who were selected through a competitive application process. Designers will produce a collection inspired by an assigned color and made using items sourced from Goodwill. Each collection will include a Goodwill program participant as a model.

The designers selected for the 2023 Color Me Goodwill fashion show are:

  • Rosanne Capone (Asheville)
  • Valentina da Costa (Weaverville)
  • Vivien Gough (Swannanoa)
  • Th3 Graces (Marshall)
  • Mae Reilly Mueller (Asheville)
  • Sybil Todd (Anderson)

Color Me Goodwill began in 2015 to highlight the impact of Goodwill’s services in western North Carolina and to celebrate the sustainable fashion community in the Asheville area. A panel of expert judges will select the first-place designer, who will receive a $500 prize. Audience members also vote on their favorite designer, who receives $200.

The 7th Annual Color Me Goodwill fashion show will take place on Friday, April 21, at The Orange Peel in downtown Asheville. Tickets will go on sale in January. For more information, follow the Color Me Goodwill Facebook page.
