Meredith alumna Katherine Fisher, ’12, was the winner of the 2014 Couture for a Cause fashion show. Fisher won both the couture and audience choice awards.

Couture for a Cause is a fashion show held in Raleigh, N.C., that pairs local designers with Activate Good’s nonprofit partners to create looks that embody the missions of those organizations. Designers compete for chance to win cash prizes, and funds raised benefit Activate Good.

Fisher was paired with The Helene Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing assistance to North Carolina families with mothers actively undergoing cancer treatments.

In her designer statement, Fisher said she planned for her designs “to have soft, flowing elements that represent vulnerability and maternal nature as well as chain details that represent strength, support, and the mother trying to keep all the pieces together as she fights this battle.”

At Meredith, Fisher majored in fashion design and interior design with a minor in studio art. This was her first time participating in Couture for a Cause.

The 2014 Couture for a Cause event was held November 15 at Marbles Kids Museum.
