Charleston, SC, July 27, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Lee Heyward, owner of Charleston Style Concierge, announces her company’s partnership with the Charleston chapter of Dress for Success, a nonprofit promoting the economic independence of disadvantaged women.
Dress for Success provides professional dress, a strong support network, and the career-development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. When a client has a job interview, she is given a suit with the option to return it for a second suit or separates when she finds employment. With the hope of raising awareness about the organization and helping women in need, Charleston Style Concierge will accept appropriate donations for the organization from its clients.
Charleston Style Concierge offers specialized styling services such as closet editing, personal shopping, and personal styling. Inspired by Coco Chanel’s famous statement, “Fashion fades, style is eternal,” Heyward is devoted to providing her clients with the tools they need to find their own personal style.
Committed to giving back to the community, Heyward is taking this dedication one step further by partnering with Dress for Success. Heyward, who believes the closet edit is the foundation to great style and great style helps boost self-confidence, says this partnership is the perfect opportunity to help more women feel confident in themselves and the way they look.
“After a closet edit, a majority of my clients have a large selection of like-new clothes, shoes, and accessories to donate—clothing that no longer fits their personal style,” says Heyward. “My closet editing service is the perfect opportunity for clients to contribute to the community. The whole edit is designed to increase confidence, and by donating clothing my clients are helping to boost the self-confidence of many more women in the Charleston area.”
Even for clients who choose not to have a closet edit, Heyward will encourage and accept appropriate donations for Dress for Success. “I couldn’t be happier about this partnership. It’s about women helping women and feeling good about themselves in the process,” says Heyward.
Dress for Success is currently looking for monetary donations or donations of new or gently used suits, handbags, shoes, belts, blouses, stockings, and seasonal clothing.
