A Little About Dress For Success Dallas
I recently had the privledge of meeting one of the Dress for Success Dallas clients through a passion project of DFWstyledaily.com. The Meaningful Makeover project resulted in a video serious detailing the journey of one of Dress for Success Dallas’ clients. See how Kristen Becker rises above domestic abuse for her son and for herself.
In addition, a fashion show benefitting Dress for Success Dallas called Light the Runway was held poolside at the beautiful home of Faye Briggs.
The evening was full of choreographed dancing, fun foods and fabulous fashions from local designers such as the Katydid Collection.
The climax of the Dress for Success Dallas Light the Runway event was of course the fashion show! It was a father/daughter themed show that really culminated the whole theme of focusing on things that make strong women. Daddy’s always are good influences and it sure showed with all the fantastic fashion we saw on the runway!
