Dress for Success Wellington

Dress up was the theme for the Dress for Success Wellington reception, hosted by Dame Patsy at Government House in Wellington. Committed to empowering women find success, Dress For Success provides women with clothing and development tools to help them find jobs and keep them.

Guests heard from Dress For Success client Rheanna Taylor Robertson, who spoke movingly about being unable to follow her dreams and how Dress For Success helped her into a full-time role with the Ministry of Social Development. There was also a fashion parade and unsurprisingly, a pop-up shop of gently used clothing proved popular.
