Don't Miss Out on this Amazing Event! Purchase Your Tickets Today! "Light the Runway" Fashion Show and Dress for Success Fundraiser sponsored by Katydid Collection 2013.
KATYDID COLLECTION TO SPONSOR “LIGHT THE RUNWAY” FASHION SHOW AND DRESS FOR SUCCESS DALLAS FUNDRAISER
Fashion Label Creates Stylish Tee With All Proceeds Benefitting the Dallas Affiliate
DALLAS – Katydid Collection is proud to announce its sponsorship of the second annual “Light the Runway” father-daughter fashion show, benefitting Dress for Success Dallas. The event – produced by Harriet Kellie Gibbe – will take place Friday, May 19 from 7 p.m. to midnight at 129 Leslie in the Dallas Design District.
Katydid Collection owner Katy Messersmith Mattox encourages local fashion lovers to come and enjoy a night of great wine, fashion and light bites. Event tickets are between $35 and $125 and can be purchased at http://dfsdallas.org/light-the-runway-sponsor-levels/. In addition to serving as the event’s host, Messersmith Mattox will be the show’s featured designer, and part of her spring collection will be featured on the event’s runway.
Every woman can now wear Katydid designs while also supporting Dress for Success Dallas. Katydid Collection has created a “Going Places, Going Strong” women’s tee, echoing the organization’s mission and motto. One hundred percent of proceeds from the tee will benefit the Dallas chapter of Dress for Success. The cotton tee is short-sleeved and loose fit with a scoop neck. The tees can be purchased at katydidcollection.com as well as at the Dress for Success Dallas offices at 13331 Preston Road, Suite 2122.
“There are few organizations that so closely mirror my desire to empower women. Like me, Dress for Success wants women to feel confident in their attire, and by extension – in their own skin,” said Messersmith. “As a female entrepreneur who believes deeply in the DFS mission, it is my honor to be an ongoing sponsor and to host this special night of fashion.”
The funds raised at the May 17 fashion show will support the Dress for Success mission of promoting economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. Last year, Dress for Success Dallas provided suits to more than 500 women, and the organization expects to double that number in 2013.
For sponsorship or other information about the event, please contact 972.392.9770 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
