Who Were This Year’s Fashion Partners?

Earlier in the spring, Dress for Success hosted our gala event, Celebrate Success. It’s a fundraiser that shines a light on the accomplishments of the women who go through Dress for Success’s programs, and every year, we have the support of so many people.
Today, we’d like to highlight our fashion partners. Our fashion partners help make our event successful — and trendy! Learn more about them below:

EILEEN FISHER has been creating effortlessly chic clothes for over 30 years. Designed with pure shapes and fine fabrics, the collections offer sophistication, comfort and style that lasts. As a socially conscious company, EILEEN FISHER is a pioneer in eco-friendly fashion and in supporting global initiatives that empower women and girls.

What sets your company apart?
As a socially conscious company, EILEEN FISHER is a pioneer in eco-friendly fashion and in supporting global initiatives that empower women and girls. To help continue on this path, last year, we launched VISION2020, a 5-year plan for us to reach 100% sustainability. This year, we were certified a B-Corp, the largest Women¹s Fashion company to achieve tis certification.
As a company we ask ourselves, How long will this style last? Is the fabric sustainable? Does it cost too much? Will it sell? It’s this constant balance between making things work for the business, the customer and the environment. We think of “business as a movement,” and that it can be used for positive change.
What would you want someone to know who has never heard of you, or never shopped with you before?
Our clothes are timeless and designed to feel like an extension of yourself. Our System pieces are meant to go with anything and everything. They’re the pieces that make getting dressed easy (we like to say in 5 minutes) that each season you¹ll wear over and over. These pieces are great additions to the base of any capsule wardrobe.

What sets your company apart?
We believe that true style does not have an expiration date. FlairWalk offers classic styles and accessories with a little edge that will outlast more than a moment for women of any age, for any occasion and any lifestyle. Fashion for a lifetime!
What would you want someone to know who has never heard of you, or never shopped with you before?
Black and white are timeless colors but we do believe that a splash of color or more is completely harmless. FlairWalk offers not only a wide selection of styles but also an array of colors from solids to prints to suit any occasion! Customers often comment on the selection of garments with color and how refreshing it is! Join us for our Open House June 2nd, 5PM – 8PM!

Mabel and Zora is a women’s clothing boutique located in the Pearl district of Portland, Oregon opened in 2006 by husband and wife team, Corey and Tiffany Bean. The vision for the shop was inspired by Doris Day and James Bond movies from the 50s and 60s. The outcome is a lovely women’s boutique with a carefully curated mix of women’s clothing lines focused on high quality, flattering and wearable styles. Designers include Trina Turk, Cynthia Rowley, Orla Kiely, Cupcakes and Cashmere, Michael Stars, Nic + Zoe and Tiffany Bean’s line created here in Portland. This June 28th marks their 10 year anniversary, be sure to visit between 6-9 on the 28th for a fabulous party and the launch of Tiffany Bean’s summer collection.
What sets your company apart?
We try to carry brands that aren’t readily available in Portland. We focus on high quality, flattering fits that are fun and we love print so we tend to have lots of fun prints available in the shop. We also exclusively carry the Tiffany Bean line in Portland.
What would you want someone to know who has never heard of you, or never shopped with you before?
We are an experience! We have so many fun collections and love to play dress up with our customers to find just the right piece for them. We specialize in dresses to wear to events: weddings, graduation, etc. and always have lots on hand to choose from.
Thanks, fashion partners, for your help in making the event such a success! We look forward to working with you for years to come.

  1. A few days ago i attempted to drop off a fairly large donation of formal dresses and some other tops etc.
    since I had only been there once before, I called when I thought I was close. I indicated there was no parking and so the person on the phone told me I would have to park in the motel Parkins big across the street and carry my donation across the street. I am seventy two years old and not about to do that. As luck would have it, a parking space cleared and I went on to ask for help. They brought out a cart. I traveled about 20 miles each way to drop off these donations. After that experience I will not be going back.


  2. Ms. Van Loo, I am a supporter of Dress for Success and don’t work directly at their business. It was so wonderful of you to make your gracious, very appreciated donations of clothing for the women in our area. Please remember that Dress for Success runs off the kindness and generosity of people just like yourself and that they themselves have restrictions in what they can do. Parking is a tough nut for all of us in the region. I guess what I’m saying is please realize the folks at Dress for Success did the best they could and came out to help you with within their constraints of a business day in operation. Please reconsider your thoughts for future donations to this wonderful business that helps so many women in our area to get started and simply call to make arrangements with staff ahead of time for a convenient to all drop off situation. I hope everyone can remember we’re all trying our best and if we all give a little, everyone gains a lot. Ms. Van Loo, thank you again for you donations to Dress for Success on behalf every one they in turn will help with your generously.
