At Distinctively Me we are passionate about making women feel great, whatever their size and shape. The women we work with are empowered and confident when they wear their made to measure Distinctively Me pieces. And that's what matters the most to us. Creating confidence.
We strongly believe in the power of well-fitting clothes. It's not just about how they make you look (fabulous, of course!) but the effect of great clothes, made to fit, has such a powerful effect on wellbeing, state of mind and most of all, confidence.
That's why we're delighted to be working with women's charity Smart Works.
Smart Works is a UK charity that supports long term unemployed women back into work providing them with an outfit of high quality clothing, free and theirs to keep, and bespoke coaching for an upcoming interview. Named Social Action Charity of the Year at the Charity Awards, the Smart Works service empowers women to succeed at their job interview and change the direction of their life. Last year they saw 3000 women and 60% got the job. Each woman is given an interview outfit to give them the confidence to get themselves back out there.
Throughout the year we will be giving a Smart Works client a complimentary pair of made to measure trousers, to add to their capsule wardrobe.
Distinctively Me Founder Jill White is proud to be onboard with the life changing charity:
"I think we all need a bit of support at certain times in our life and Smartworks gives that to women when they really need it. It's a practical and useful charity and one I'm happy to be working with. At Distinctively Me we understand that when clothes fit you, feel comfortable and look fabulous then you can be your best. Donating a free made to measure pair of trousers to a wonderfully deserving Smartworks woman is a joy".
As Samantha Jones, Smart Works Head of UK Communications says:
"Every client who is successful at interview is invited to join the Smart Works Network and come to a monthly event when we invited a speaker to come and share their insights, offer inspiration and the opportunity to socialise and meet with other professional women. Distinctively Me has generously donated a pair of made to measure, tailored trousers to one of our Network members, who is currently going through her fitting process. We’re proud to be working with a brand that aligns with our ethos, and understands the impact that well fitted, stylish clothing can have on a woman’s confidence.
Look out for an update next week when we'll be sharing Ash's story. Ash is the first woman we are working with in conjunction with Smart Works and we can't wait to tell you more about the trousers we created for her.
