Supporting the Local Community: Athens Dress Drive
Hi, I am Emma Ryals, the Visual Merchandiser for Couture a la Cart.
The Wave and Sarah Brooks Photography are partnering with new downtown Athens boutique, Arete Style to collect gently used bridesmaid dresses, formal dresses, and evening gowns until March 24, 2022. If you would like to support the community and pass on dresses to local high school students, you can drop your dresses off at Arete Style on East Clayton Street. On Thursday evening from 4-7 pm, the store will be hosting the high school students, giving them an opportunity to go through the collection of dresses and chose one for free to wear to prom!
Now is your chance to give any of your old dresses collecting dust in the back of your closet a new life to a deserving high school student. Additionally, if you know any seniors going to prom that would be interested in participating, spread the word! Our mission of Couture a la Cart this semester prioritizes supporting the local community and if you love the Cart, we just know you will love this opportunity.
