DRESSEMBER (Event Spotlight)Blog
I created an outdoor market place where ethical brands could sell their goods and guests could get some early Christmas shopping done all while supporting a great cause.
The night included a fashion show of the 2016 DRESSEMBER Collection. (All hand-made by trafficking survivors).
We also had all of the usual party staples such as a photo-booth, dj, bar, catering, and step and repeat! I made a place for the great raffle and silent auction prizes as well.
When I was designing the part of the program where they extend an ask for donation, I learned that it costs $6,300 to save just ONE girl out of the sex trade. That’s when I decided there needs to be a tangible way for guests to partner to make a difference regardless their size budget. I thought in the same way that a great dress isn’t one size fits all but rather fits you perfectly, each hanger should offer pricing that can fit a wide range of budgets.
The hangers were broken down into $30 – $900 increments, each one meeting a specific need for the girl rescued to thrive and succeed after being rescued. To my joy, the rack was quickly cleared by generous empathetic guests! A girl will be gifted back her dignity and freedom through this event and the guests all went home feeling like heroes!
Thank you Prismm for having the venue floorplan already in your data base so I could focus my energy where it was most needed during the planning of this event!
