Dress for Success
Dress for Success San Francisco is the local affiliate to Dress for Success Worldwide, a global non profit organization that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. Our vision is a world where women do not live in poverty and are treated with dignity and respect and are strengthening their families and shaping their communities.
In October 2011, Mayor Edwin M. Lee launched FashionSF - an economic initiative focused on supporting the retention and growth of San Francisco’s apparel manufacturers and fashion designers. The goal of FashionSF is to support the expansion of existing designers and manufacturers in the apparel and accessory sector and facilitate and support new company startup and growth.
FashionSF is administered out of the Office of Economic and Workforce Development (OEWD) which supports San Francisco's ongoing economic vitality by strengthening its neighborhoods, businesses, commercial corridors and workforce.
