fashion for a good cause
If you haven’t waded into the depths of your closet lately for a serious clean-out session, here’s a reason to put that on your to-do list: next week marks the beginning of the annual dress drive from the Princess Project, a San Francisco-based non-profit that gifts high school girls in need with new and gently-used dresses and accessories so they can step out in style on their prom nights.
Each year, we look forward to Discarded to Divine, a very-San Francisco fashion event that pairs creativity and a community-minded twist to raise awareness and much-needed funds for St. Vincent de Paul Society programs supporting low-income people in need and victims of domestic violence.
And judging by a sneak peek we recently received of the garments, created by both new and established designers using discarded clothing and textiles donated to St. Vincent de Paul Society, the April 26 soiree looks like it will be the event’s biggest and best year yet.
