Dress for Success SW Florida is getting ready to roll out the red carpet for its sparkling annual signature event, “A Fashion Night in Black & White,” on Wednesday, April 29 at 6 p.m. at the Hilton Naples.

Wear your finest cocktail attire in black, white (or white and black) for an evening of fashion, hors d’oeuvres, champagne, dinner, a silent auction and many delightful surprises to support Dress for Success SW Florida in its important work of promoting the professional development of women in Collier and Lee counties. Guest speaker will be Donna Noce, President of White House Black Market and founding President of Dress for Success SW Florida. ABC-7 anchor Amy Sedlacek will be the Master of Ceremonies. Guests will get an up-close look at White House Black Market’s Summer 2015 line of fashions. The fashion show will be produced and directed by the White House Black Market corporate team headquartered in Southwest Florida.

As supporters of Dress for Success SW Florida, attendees will enjoy star treatment, with the red carpet illuminated by paparazzi flash bulbs. Dress to impress, and you may be subject to impromptu questions such as “What label are you wearing?” Bring a little extra enthusiasm and flair, and you may make the evening’s Best Dressed list.

100% of the donations support the continued advancement of Dress for Success SW Florida’s programs for women in Collier and Lee counties, including personalized job interview suiting with a Personal Shopper; Dress for Success boutiques in Naples and Fort Myers; and encouraging and mentoring women who are unemployed, underemployed and starting their own business.

CEO Barbara Dell said, “We’re thrilled that our annual event has earned such a prominent place on the community’s social calendar. We finally have a boutique and office in Naples to provide clothing and services for underprivileged women in Collier County. It’s gratifying that so many of our supporters look forward to the glitter and fun of this special evening as well as the opportunity to promote our life-changing mission.”
