Coronavirus means the 15th annual Capital Catwalk to benefit Dress for Success Hartford had to be virtual. Kara Sundlun has been emceeing this event since its inception along with a great group of volunteers who set out to help women re-entering the workforce. Dress for Success finds clothing for women and helps them perfect their image as they apply for jobs an go on interviews.
This just in: since this began, the Capital Catwalk has raised $1,000,000 and outfitted 8 thousand women! Wow!
Over the years the Capital Catwalk fashion show has featured leading names from the community, and some of your Channel 3 favorites including Denise D’Ascenzo and Scot Haney. We miss Denise terribly, so this year’s show was dedicated to her. Watch it here:
Also, I will be back next year and here’s hoping Covid is under control and we can have an in-person Capital Catwalk. If you would like to donate, you can do so here. Every dollar helps! https://hartford.dressforsuccess.org/get-involved/donate/
