We accept donations of formal wear in all sizes and for all age groups. Our talented seamstresses transform the garments into modern, fashionable, wearable pieces that we give away to girls and women who need them.

Broken zipper? Torn hem? No problem, we can take care of that so the dress can be worn by a deserving princess.

Out-of-style? Too tacky? We embellish or remove trims and pieces as necessary to make the dresses look fashionable and stylish for today’s trends.

Wedding dress taking up too much space? You have the memories preserved in photos – give it to us to help de-clutter your home while making a deserving bride feel beautiful on her special day.

Have an old bridesmaid dress gathering dust in the back of a closet? Give it to us and you’ll make a young girl’s dream of going to the prom a reality.

Outgrown flower girl dress? Mother-of-the-Bride dress never to be worn again? What’s old to you is new to someone else, and can brighten the life of a princess in need.

We also need accessories such as shoes, purses, and costume jewelry. Please place all small items in a sealed bag to avoid loss of loose pieces.
