Clothing Drive: International Women's Day

Empower Hour

Dress for Success Clothing Drive - International Women's Day 2023

UNSW Business School is championing Dress for Success’s Empower Hour as part of International Women’s Day (IWD) to empower more than 700 women across Australia into employment. As part of IWD, we are undertaking a clothing drive at the UNSW Kensington Campus from Friday 3rd March to Friday 10th March. 

Your donation to the clothing drive is more than just a gift, it is an investment in a vulnerable woman’s future.  

What to donate? 

  • Clothes suitable for contemporary women working across all industries 

  • Designer and luxury brand names – on trend styles and classic pieces 

  • High-quality jewellery 

  • Handbags and accessories in very good condition 

  • Shoes – new or near new 

  • Quality +16 sizes 

Please help with our sustainable approach by only donating clean items in good repair, and please no discount or ‘fast fashion’ brands. 

Clothing should be of good quality, striving to be stylish and durable, and of brands that do not have a rapid turnover of designs where garments often become dated quickly. 

Please know, some brands of fast fashion that can be accepted include H&M and Zara. Brands that are usually not accepted include Cotton On, Kmart, Shein, Target and similar.

About IWD 2023 Theme: This year, we are supporting the UN theme #CrackingTheCode. This theme highlights the role that accessible education and inclusive technologies play in addressing and alleviating the marginalisation of women globally. By ensuring equal access to education for women and girls and creating pathways and inclusive workplaces for women, we can continue to move closer toward cracking the code to gender equality.
