K.I.S.S (Keep it Simple and Stylish)

keep your style simple and keep it pushing!

Do you have a suit or barely worn professional clothing currently taking up space in the back of your closet?  Why not give them to someone who is in need of clothing to wear on the job or for a job interview?  Since 1996, Dress for Success has provided professional clothing for disadvantaged women in hopes of helping them find and keep employment.

Founder, Nancy Lublin used a $5,000 inheritance from her great-grandfather to create a service that would give an opportunity at a “new start” for those in need.  Lublin partnered with three nuns who each ran public service programs in New York City to create Dress for Success– the organization now has over 105 affiliate locations throughout the world. In addition to job training and professional services, each client is given a suit to wear to her  job interview and once she finds work she is eligible to receive more professional clothing to wear on the job.

Because donations are vital to the continued success of this program, any Individual who would like to give to this organization may do so by visiting the donate clothing page on the company website.  The organization is always in need of larger size suits and apparel and is currently accepting new or gently used and cleaned:

Skirt and pant suits (must be coordinated, contemporary and interview-appropriate)
Professional blouses
Professional blazers and jackets
Professional shoes

At this time, Dress for Success is not accepting:

Sportswear or casual clothing
Evening wear
Used underwear
Men’s clothing
Used Cosmetics

If you are an apparel or accessories company interested in making a new product contribution, please visit our donate product page or send e-mail to
