Fashion Week

During Fashion Week, women from our community will model outfits from our very own Dress for Success Boutique! You can vote for your favorite outfits or models by donating $20 to the Dress for Success program. All sponsors will receive free votes to cast as part of their sponsorship package. The model with the most votes will receive two free tickets (a $200 value) for our Circle event on October 19, 2023. All proceeds generated will benefit YWCA’s Dress for Success program, helping women to become self-sufficient.

Thank you to all of our models, sponsors, and voters for your help in making Fashion Week 2023 a successful event! Because of you, we have raised $8,970 for YWCA Northeast Indiana’s Dress for Success program. These funds will greatly help us provide professional attire and development tools women need to thrive in work and in life. We are proud to share that the winner of this year’s event is Deborah Sturges, CEO of Hallmark Home Mortgage! Thank you for your hard work in getting the word out about this great community program!

YWCA’s Dress for Success program empowers women with low income to prepare for employment and healthy financial management so they can reach economic independence and exit poverty. Dress for Success provides professional suiting services and employment and financial coaching services to women with low income.

All proceeds benefit YWCA Northeast Indiana’s Dress for Success program, which empowers women to achieve economic independence in Fort Wayne and the northeast Indiana community.
