Our core programs include:

Interview Styling is a one (1) hour appointment where clients receive a complete outfit ready for interview. The appointments are run by our trained volunteers and leave the client feeling confident and ready to walk into their interview or new job role.

If they are successful in obtaining a position, they can book an Employment Styling session, where we will pull together a capsule wardrobe which provides the client a whole week’s worth of clothing to start their new job.

With our Life Event Styling we also support women who may need to attend court or have a reason in their life for a particular outfit (graduation, wedding, funeral etc).

The clothes are the clients to keep and are all excellent condition quality brand name work wear. Clients often walk away with bags filled with clothing worth in excess of hundreds of dollars. But it really is so much more than just the clothes, it’s the confidence that the women get and the help they receive to put together outfits that work and compliment their size and shape.

Career Support

We support women to develop their resume, write a cover letter and to put together a job application for a specific purpose. This is done on an individual basis either virtually, via email or face to face.

Prison Program

We provide a “Welcome Backpack” to women exiting Mary Hutchinson Prison.  These contain the basic, essential items women need to be able to exit the correctional system with dignity.
