AN initiative to provide women pre-loved clothing to empower them in the workplace will be available at a shopping centre for the first time.

Karrinyup Shopping Centre has partnered with a non-profit organisation Dress for Success Perth until September 27.

Shoppers can donate pre-loved workwear for women in need striving to achieve economic independence.

“This is the first time Dress for Success Perth has partnered with a shopping centre, so we are really proud to be working with them,” Karrinyup Shopping Centre manager Tim Richards said.

“Job interviews are always challenging, and Dress for Success plays an important role in helping women to feel more confident in these situations.

“Through providing a convenient drop off point north of the river, we hope to collect lots of quality clothing and accessories.”

Dress for Success Perth general manager Kelli Carnachan said the initiative aimed to empower women.

“We offer a non-judgemental, empathetic and professional service that strives to empower Western Australian women to achieve economic independence,” she said.

“The generous donations of professional, gently loved women’s clothes, shoes and handbags will go towards furnishing our clients with confidence to enter or return to the workforce, make a great first impression and land a job that could change their life.

Dress for Success Perth will be accepting clean, gently loved clothing and accessories including work appropriate suits, tops, blouses, skirts, camisoles, jackets dresses, shoes and handbags.

Casual clothing, runners, stilettos and clothing in need of repair and cleaning would not be accepted.

Clothing can be dropped at the Concierge on the ground floor outside of David Jones until September 27.

The Dress for Success drive is part of the shopping centre’s Spring campaign, which also includes a visit to The Chrysalis for customers who spend over $130 in September.
