Just Add Style in the fashion press!
We’re thrilled to see our ‘London Fashion’ luxury silk twill scarf feature in YOU magazine as one of Jo Elvin’s curated Editor’s Picks.
Jo was instrumental in launching Em’s global fashion illustration career when she profiled her style while editing fashion glossy Glamour. Jo’s support in the early days massively helped Em’s international client list and her respected reputation in the world of high end fashion and art.
We’re passionate about supporting and encouraging women to thrive. So much so, we pledge to donate £5 of every online Just Add Style scarf sale to Smart Works, a UK charity which helps empower women to succeed in the world of employment.
Smart Works provides high quality interview clothes and interview training to unemployed women in need. They harness the power of clothes and confidence to allow a woman to be her best at a crucial moment in her life, giving her the self-belief and the practical tools required to succeed at interview and transform her life.
Women are referred to Smart Works from organisations such as job centres, work programmes, prisons, care homes, homeless shelters and mental health charities. Half have been unsuccessful in over 20 applications. A third have been turned down from over 50 jobs. All are suffering from a lack of confidence in their own abilities.
The tangible impact the Smart Works service has on a woman’s confidence is something they have they privilege to witness every day. The magic begins when she enters the dressing room and is styled into her interview outfit, hers to keep, by trained volunteers. She looks in the mirror and sees a new and impressive version of herself. This is followed by one-to-one interview coaching, after which 64% of their clients go on to get the job.
Smart Works have a team of over 350 trained volunteers across the UK who deliver their award-winning service to their clients – skilled, compassionate and brilliant people who dedicate their time to empower women to succeed.
Look good, feel good, do good!
