The DRES brand promotes a positive self image and represents acceptance of every body, no matter your age, shape, race, style or color. The DRES System celebrates diversity and promotes strong confident women though personalized makeovers.
We had the pleasure to attend a unique fashion event organized by the Founder of DRES System, Margaret Spencer.
Margaret Spencer is a fascinating woman who has taken her art, design and marketing background in corporate America and applied it to Personal Image Styling. Her entrepreneur experience includes ten years as the owner and designer of a graphic design agency with world brands such as Nike, Intel and Microsoft; five years as the owner and instructor of an art school; and eleven years operating the DRES System styling agency and working with every woman, from domestic goddess to pilot to physician.
Her DRES SWAP EVENT was the first of it’s kind.
The Party gave the opportunity for women to support other women in the community by allowing them to Upgrade their Wardrobe for as little as $20 and or a donation of clothing. The DRES Swap also had locations popping up everywhere for donation drop off’s, where people could obtain swap credits toward the event and great packages people could obtain to show their support. The Event was hosted at Haynes’ Hall in the McMenamins Anderson School and featured live entertainment from an all female 80’s rock band, woman-owned small business vendors, an open sip and eat bar, swap till you drop racks, and a chance to purchase raffle tickets to win a vacation to Hawaii.
100% of the proceeds went to benefit Washington Women In Need who believes that a woman has the wisdom and freedom to make her own choices and design her own future. Given the opportunity, every woman can inspire positive change for herself, her family, and her community. They provide education and healthcare grants to deserving women in our community.
All clothing, accessories and cosmetics left over after the DRES Swap to be donated directly to Goodwill of Seattle. Their mission is to provide job training and education programs to help people find and keep good jobs, which is funded by their retail stores. Last year they provided services to over 11,500 people, and more than 1,900 were placed into jobs.
