Talbots teams up with O, The Oprah Magazine to benefit Dress for Success

Talbots Joins forces with O, The Oprah Magazine
Limited-edition “O Capsule Collection for Talbots” to raise money for Dress
for Success

CHARLESTON, S.C. –– Talbots and O, The Oprah Magazine have joined forces to
launch Give Confidence, Hope and Style, an unprecedented spring retail
collaboration and national marketing campaign that is for women, about
women, supporting women and dressing women. Give Confidence, Hope and Style
is the culmination of two like-minded organizations with like-minded
philanthropic visions coming together to support Dress for Success, an
international charity that promotes economic independence of disadvantaged
women by providing professional attire and career development.

As part of the partnership, O Magazine’s Creative Director Adam Glassman
teamed up with Leon Green, senior vice president of design at Talbots, to
design The O Capsule Collection for Talbots.  This limited-edition 7-piece
collection will hit Talbots stores nationwide beginning February 22 and will
be available through April 3, with 30% of the sales proceeds benefitting
Dress for Success.  The collection is available in missy (sizes 2-20),
petite (sizes 0 -16), women’s (sizes 12w – 24w) and women’s petite (sizes
12wp – 22wp). The O Capsule Collection will be featured in an editorial
fashion spread in the March issue of O Magazine, and will be promoted
through digital social content and national store events.
Last year, through customer donations and a percentage of proceeds from
store events, Talbots collected over 4,000 boxes of clothing and was able to
donate $500,000 to Dress for Success. This year, through the partnership
with O Magazine, the goal is to double the monetary and clothing donations.

On Saturday, March 5, all Talbots stores across the country will hold
“Style Events,” where women nationwide can shop the collection, enjoy
refreshments, and make donations to Dress for Success. Both monetary
donations and gently worn clothing will be accepted at any Talbots locations
from March 3 to March 6. The local store locations are at 261 King Street in
downtown Charleston, 1125 Market Center Drive, Mt. Pleasant (at Towne
Centre) and at Tanger Outlet in North Charleston.
