Dress for Success Miami hosted an evening of sophistication & style to kick-off the 20th Anniversary Gala Celebration, hosted by Zurami Pascual, Dr. Karent Sierra and Maritere Secada and fashion presentation by Max Mara at Bloomingdale’s Aventura.

Dress for Success Miami’s programs transition women towards self-sufficiency by addressing their social and economic needs in relation to work, home and community. Each woman is a success story: she has gone from unemployment to economic independence. The staff at Dress for Success Miami begins with providing woman with a business suit when she has a job interview and once she successfully lands the job, Dress for Success offers her business clothing. She joins the Professional Women’s Group, our career development and networking group, and participates in other employment retention programs such as mentoring.

The kick-off reception took place at the Ritz-Carlton Residences in Miami Beach, the beautiful residence designed by award winning architect Piero Lissoni. The property is seven acres of gardens, pool and a marina. The Ritz-Carlton Residence have over 100 residences, and private villas, sitting on the private Surprise Lake. Some heavy hitters provided entertainment and MC’ing to the fashion show, including Jon Secada, Laurie Jennings, Calvin Hughes, Trina Robinson and Lisa Petrillo. Dress for Success Miami had their founder, Sonia Jacobson and Jennfier Heegard on hand.
