Dress for Success Fall Fashion Show Gala
Today is the big day! I am so excited to be a part of Dress for Success Washington DC's annual fundraiser! This year DFSDC is hosting a Fashion Show to fundraise for their programs. Local businesses donated items for silent auction as well as to be displayed on the runway.
As part of the fashion show, I was honored to work with two Dress for Success clients to design custom outfits for their runway walk. These women are the best example of why DFSDC is such an amazing organization, both radiated with pride when talking about the wonderful things DFSDC has brought into their lives.
Many people only think about the clothes that DFS provides to its clients when asked what they know about the organization. Dress for Success also serves as a community resource where women can find networking opportunities, job leads, professional development and most of all support from an amazing tribe of ladies.
So, as the event kicks off this evening, I ask you to consider making a donation to Dress for Success Washington DC, or your local DFS affiliate to help this amazing organization continue to build up women across the country. Donations of gently used professional clothing are always accepted, as are financial donations. You can also use your talents to help DFS, there are many, many opportunities for volunteers! You can find your local Dress For Success chapter & donate by following this link.
As part of my donation, for the next 7 days both runway looks are available for custom order, with a portion of the sale going to Dress for Success DC. You can look good while doing good!
Stay tuned for event photos from the amazing Sarah Marcella Photography another local business and DFS donor!
