After the success of our first Mama Swappies event in April, we were thrilled to gather another group of influential New York City women for this next fashion exchange. At this intimate event, guests brought at least three designer items (women’s clothing and/or accessories) to swap with other attendees.
Held at a beautiful townhouse on the Upper West Side, the event was a fun way for women to give back while also enjoying a fun night out. During the event, guests had the opportunity to network, enjoy cocktails from Cuca Fresca, light bites from Duette Foodshed, cake pops from Angela’s Sugar Fix and have their hair braided by stylists from PRIV.
Before the swap began, Jennifer Tannenbaum of Closet and Retail (and our amazing intern, Eumi), organized the clothing and accessories into editors’ picks, summer dresses, winter items, and accessories.
A gorgeous cocktail dress from Cynthia Rowley, a limited edition handbag from RebeccaMinkoff and jewelry from Soulbeadz were donated for the event raffle, where 100% of the proceeds were donated to Dress for Success.
Guests were able to learn more about our charity partner, Dress for Success, a non-profit renowned for empowering women by providing them with professional attire as they look for work and enter the workforce. Camille Aponte, from Dress for Success spoke to guests about the organization, which also offers classes and wellness programs to set women up for success both in the office and in their personal life.
At the end of this wonderful evening, guests left with a gift bag filled with amazing products.
Following the event, we brought a check from the raffle prizes and six bags of beautiful clothing, shoes, accessories and beauty products to Dress for Success, which will be used to help women in our community kick-off their careers.
We hope to see you at our next event this fall!
