In 1999, Dress for Success opened its London office.  The Prime Minister's wife, Cherie Blair, attended the event and donated a few of her business suits for the cause.  The Mission of Dress for Success is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire, and development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.

Dress for Success offers long-lasting solutions that enable women to break the cycle of poverty.  They are part of a global movement for change, empowering women to obtain safer and better futures.

Professional Attire for Women

Dress for Success provides each client with professional attire to secure employment, but they are about much more than simply a new outfit.   Besides physically equipping the client with apparel and accessories, their programs furnish women with the confidence that they will carry forever and the knowledge that they can actively define their lives, the direction their lives will take, and what success means to them individually.

The Dress for Success vision is a world where women do not live in poverty; they are treated with dignity and respect and are strengthening their families and shaping their communities.  Every woman has the right to realize her full potential and achieve financial independence in a more egalitarian world. We believe that with the proper education, tools, and action this world is possible.Dress for Sucess London Launch

Poverty and Women

Poverty often affects women the most, and its effects on them and their families can be long-lasting. Therefore, addressing women’s needs is central to improving the quality of life for not only that woman but also her family, future generations, and her community. In fact, recognizing the significant role of women in economic development is the smart thing to do, as well as being socially and morally right.  For more information on Dress for Success and to find a location near you, please visit their site at DressforSuccess. 


About Dress for Success
In 1996, second-year law student Nancy Lublin received a $5,000 inheritance from her great-grandfather and decided to turn this gift into one that would keep on giving. She teamed up with three nuns in her area and, identifying a crucial need that was not being filled, founded Dress for Success in the basement of a church in Manhattan that same year. From that original basement boutique, the mission of Dress for Success spread over all of North America and then across the globe, demonstrating that achieving economic independence is a challenge that all women face regardless of their location, language, customs, or culture.
Dress for Success is an international not-for-profit organization that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire, and development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.

Since starting operations in 1997, Dress for Success has expanded to more than 150 cities in 25 countries and has helped more than one million women work towards self-sufficiency.
