I am very excited about the new partnership between Talbots and O, The Oprah Magazine! They have teamed up to design an exclusive limited-edition 7-piece capsule collection to benefit Dress for Success! This unprecedented spring retail collaboration and national marketing campaign is for women, about women, supporting women and dressing women. The partnership is the culmination of two like-minded organizations with like-minded philanthropic visions coming together to support Dress for Success, an international not-for profit organization that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.

O Magazine’s first ever clothing line will hit Talbots stores nationwide began earlier this week,  February 22nd and will continue through April 3rd; it will be also be available online and in Missy, Petite and Woman (plus) sizes with a generous 30% of the net proceeds benefiting Dress for Success, a not-for-profit organization that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. Last year, Talbots raised $500,000 and collected over 4,000 boxes of clothing for DFS, and hope to double those efforts this year!
