Success Story

Gwendalyn - Transformation Grew From Trust

Referred to Dress For Success Southern Nevada by the Veteran Administration, Gwendalyn first walked through the door and didn’t know what to expect. A mother of four recently arrived from Puerto Rico, she had little but the clothes on her back and the vision to better herself and her family. Once she began relying on the attentive Dress for Success Image Consultant, she quickly relaxed and began smiling.  She received the best fashion and fit possible, in fact appearing in one of the outfits for the Dana Wagner TV13 interview. She wants to come back as a volunteer for Dress for Success Southern Nevada. Gwendalyn, thank you for your service to the United States Armed Forces, and welcome to your new beginnings and successes!
