Dress for Success NWA “more than just the suit”

When I write about professional headshot services, one topic is “what do I wear?”

Choosing professional clothing for a headshot or a job is an important part of success because it not only provides a great first impression, but gives each person a “can-do” mindset. Dress for Success is an international nonprofit organization that has one affiliate in Arkansas—right here in Northwest Arkansas.


“The mission of Dress for Success is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life,” according to their website.

I had the honor of taking pictures of the Dress for Success NWA Boutique a couple of years ago, and I returned recently to get pictures of the Boutique after it’s been renovated and training tables have been added.


The Boutique is the central location for DFSNWA services, which include providing free business wear for referred women preparing for a job interview or starting new job, and also job training services and seminars.



This organization offers many opportunities to get involved. You can donate your gently used scrubs or business attire, join them for their monthly Suit Sort Saturdays (usually the first Saturday morning of the month), donate funds to help support the various, programs, or perhaps even coordinate with organizers to offer a seminar for clients.

In the meantime, give me a call today to schedule your professional headshot photoshoot!
