In Good Fashion: The Giving Closet

In Good Fashion: The Giving Closet

My inner do-gooder and working girl – they’re both obsessed.

Launched in 2011 by celebrity and TV wardrobe stylist Sam Russell (he’s one of the reasons stars like Jon Hamm and Stevie Wonder are known for looking so good), The Giving Closet is a charity devoted to empowering “women in need that have the full intent to enter the workforce and must evolve their work wardrobe.” To this end, Russell travels from city to city, surprising a chosen woman in need with $10,000 worth of work and casual clothes. Not only will she look the part in job interviews, but the confidence boost is invaluable.
