Dress for Success Central Virginia Making HERstory Gala & Fashion Show
Don't miss the Dress for Success Central Virginia Making HERstory: 5th Anniversary Gala & Fashion Show, Saturday April 22nd. The event will consist of a signature recycled fashion show, seated dinner, testimonials from their clients and plenty of inspiration.
Each year Dress for Success Central Virginia provides hundreds of women with professional attire. All of the clothing comes from generous public donations but occasionally, they receive donations that are not appropriate for work. This gave them the inspiration for the first Recycled Fashion Show in 2012, which challenged local fashion designers to create runway worthy designs from the charity's collection of unworkable clothes. What makes the recycled fashion show unique is that this event forgoes the traditional fashion show format and challenges local designers to create high fashion garments using damaged, outdated, or unused clothing donations. Much like how Dress for Success transforms the lives of women around the world, their fashion 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. After the event make sure you check out the after party at 7 Hills Seafood & Brewing Co. from 10p-2a.
