Dress for Success Atlanta Dresses 10,000 Women

Dress for Success Atlanta will suit their 10,000 client on Tuesday, June 3 at 1:45 p.m in the organization’s America’s Mart showroom on Spring Street. Founded in 1997, Dress For Success promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. Dress for Success Atlanta joined the International Dress For Success community in 1999. Since that time, the organization has worked with numerous agencies and organizations to serve the women of Atlanta through job training, mentorship, and, the provision of work appropriate clothing.

Dress for Success clients are eligible to receive a suiting through several referral agencies. Partnered with a personal shopper, clients browse the Atlanta showroom’s collection of suits, shoes, and accessories to put together several interview-appropriate ensembles. When a client successfully obtains a job, she may return the showroom to shop for several more outfits or uniforms. Dress for Success Atlanta suits over 1,000 new clients each year.

Dress For Success Atlanta’s program director, Victoria Hook, says the “10,000 suiting is a huge milestone for the organization. It shows the need for and importance of programs that empower women. Even after 10,000 suitings, we still are meeting a need that grows every single year.”
