Dress for Success

When you help one woman, you also help her family and an entire community. As Global Ambassador for Dress for Success (DFS), Scarlett will bring attention to the organization’s crucial mission to end gender-based inequality and cycles of despair. As a brand, we are committed to supporting DFS programs that help women as they return to the labor force. Dress for Success (DFS) is the leading global non-profit employment resource for women helping them find jobs, advance their careers, and become economically independent. What began in a church basement in New York City has now become a global movement.
