Dress for Success Becomes Centre Parkway Neighbor

The mission of Dress for Success Lexington is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.

As such, Dress for Success Lexington offers long-lasting solutions that enable women to break the cycle of poverty. Dress for Success provides its clients with professional attire and accessories, as well as the confidence and knowledge for women to actively define their own lives.

Employment Solutions has had a longtime relationship with Dress for Success and admires the many contributions this organization has made in our community. In January 2017 Dress for Success moved its operations to our 1165 Centre Parkway property in Lexington.

We are also excited that its proximity will make it much more convenient for the participants of Bluegrass Career Services and the students of the College for Technical Education to make use of its fine services.
