Making HERstory: 5th Anniversary Gala & Fashion Show
Sat, April 22, 2017, 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM EDT
Join us on Saturday, April 22, 2017 as we celebrate 5 years of empowering women to achieve economic independence! Making HERstory presented by UPS Freight will feature our signature recycled fashion show, three course dinner, testimonials from our clients and plenty of inspiration. Dress attire for this event will be cocktail/evening attire.
Our annual recycled fashion show is an amazing display of local fashion that celebrates the success of the women that Dress for Success Central Virginia serves and is designed to directly benefit our employment retention programs.
Each year Dress for Success Central Virginia provides hundreds of women with professional attire. All of our clothing comes from generous public donations. Occasionally, we receive donations that are not appropriate for work. However, we believe every article of clothing has a purpose. In 2012, we hosted our first Recycled Fashion Show and challenged local designers to create runway worthy designs from our collection of unworkable clothes.
What makes our recycled fashion unique is that this event forgoes the traditional fashion show format and challenges local designers to create high fashion garments using soiled, damaged, outdated, or unused clothing donations. Much like Dress for Success transforms the lives of women around the world, our designers transform these unsuitable garments into amazing works of art.
This year's theme; Making HERstory, is a tribute to the empowered woman, her power suit, and its ethos of confidence and success that have remained timeless and transcendent.
Our hostess for the evening will be Richmond's favorite personality, Kelli S. Lemon!
