Our Suits Tell Stories.
The elements of a suit are seemingly basic: fabric, buttons and thread. But slip this suit onto the shoulders of a woman starting her job search, and this is where the suit becomes complex. This is where it means something. This is when it becomes more.
For 18 years, Career Wardrobe has been a resource for women just starting their journeys into the workforce. We’ve provided educational programs, networking tools and support to improve their lives.
Having a new suit coupled with self-confidence has both an immediate and life-altering impact on her life, and that of her children and family.
