The women of Big D came out in full forces for the 15th Annual Attitudes & Attire Fashion Show. Spotted were flowing dresses, colorful wedges, and some of the prettiest spring fashions from Elements in Dallas.
There were many local notables in the audience and on stage. Amy Vanderoef from Good Morning Texas, LeeAnne Locken, Allison Volk and many more philanthropic women were also spotted on the catwalk.
Attitudes & Attire’s multi-tiered programs instill in women the resources necessary for gaining confidence and self-worth—enabling them to get back in the workplace. Attitudes & Attire workshops focus on self-esteem, communication skills, interview preparation and work ethic.
Attitudes & Attire founder Lyn Berman says, “We started in 1996 with 65 women and last year we served 1,600 women. We have six full-time staff and over 400 volunteers. Our clients, ranging in age from 15-65, are all below the poverty level. These women come from all ethnic groups and all walks of life, and for some reason, they have fallen through the cracks.”
Three clients spoke of how this organization changed their lives forever. Some had trouble past of drugs and alcohol, some victims of domestic violence, and some just victims of the economy. Each story different and powerful, and each with a happy ending. The tools Attitudes & Attire provide for their clients are life changing opportunities. I was honored to be a guest at this fabulous event. Bravo ladies, Bravo!!
