Come walk the blue carpet with AVEDA salons from across Georgia for the 6th Annual Catwalk for Water on Sunday, April 15 at The Metropolitan Club in Alpharetta, GA. Catwalk for Water promotes clean water awareness through featuring looks that blend style and sustainability.
The event brings AVEDA salons artists, as well as inspiriting stylists together as they work in collaboration with their design teams to present the best in hair, makeup and fashion. Proceeds from the event will benefit CRK and our work to preserve and protect the Chattahoochee River – the liquid life line for more than 4 million Georgians.
Design teams will showcase their creative interpretations of recycled and reused fashion on the runway through hair, makeup and wardrobe styling. In the spirit of friendly competition, we will have three guest judges who will decide which team represented the best overall in show, hair and makeup, and the theme of recycled and reused materials.
Each year, contestants pull out all the stops and create some of the most inspired looks that represent AVEDA’s commitment to sustainability.
Featuring cocktails, appetizers, a silent auction and an after-show dance party, Catwalk for Water promises a fabulous evening.

Deep, raw funk. Stax-style Southern soul. Uplifting Motown-channeling anthems.
Ruby Velle and the Soulphonics have made a name for themselves captivating audiences with their stirring live performances. They’re a world-class modern soul revue topped off with the cherry of Velle’s sultry voice, as she deftly toggles between sweetly crooned R&B tunes and expertly belted barn-burning get-downs that can instantly jolt a roomful of wallflowers into a wild dance party.
It’s this inviting and accessible bravado that has scored the band critical acclaim from outlets such as The New York Daily News, MTV, Paste and more. And in addition to their critical success, at a time when record sales are at an all-time industry low, the independent, DIY-minded Velle and the Soulphonics sold a quarter-million downloads of their single “My Dear” on iTunes, landing them in the top 30 on Billboard’s Heatseeker charts and at a stunning #4 on the iTunes R&B charts when their debut album It’s About Time was released in 2012. The group has shared bills with megastars and indie press darlings alike, including Erykah Badu, The XX, Goodie Mob, Gary Clark Jr., Animal Collective, Feist and Kendrick Lamar.
