In the intricate dance of job interviews, making a stellar first impression is vital, and it all starts with the perfect outfit. For many, the journey to find affordable, professional, and well-fitted attire can seem like scaling Mount Everest. But thanks to SHEIN’s recent collaboration with Dress For Success Greater London, this monumental task just got easier.


SHEIN, the global fashion brand known for its trendy and affordable collections, has joined hands with Dress For Success Greater London, a charity laser-focused on empowering women to achieve economic independence. This powerful partnership aims to provide both financial support and a versatile clothing range, ensuring every woman has access to outfits that resonate confidence and professionalism.


Fionnuala Shannon, the Executive Director of Dress for Success Greater London, expressed her enthusiasm about the collaboration. She stated, “SHEIN has been a beacon of support since 2019, enabling us to offer pre-employment training, confidence-building sessions, and a complimentary wardrobe. This partnership is more than just fashion—it’s an empowerment programme.”

 

From the art of tailoring to choosing the right accessories and prioritizing comfort, her five tips highlight the essentials every woman should consider when dressing for an interview.

What’s even more heartwarming is SHEIN’s commitment to address the hurdles faced by plus-size individuals. By collaborating closely with Dress For Success Greater London, SHEIN unveiled their curve collection, specially crafted for women ranging from UK sizes 16-24. This line ensures that every woman, regardless of her size, can step into an interview room exuding confidence and style.

Since its inception, this collaboration has been a beacon of hope for over 400 women, providing them not just with the perfect interview attire but also financial support.


They offer specialized client appointments, career development days, and even sustainable pop-up shops—all geared towards bolstering women’s confidence in their job hunts. Impressively, a staggering 80% of women have secured employment post their first appointment, painting a testament to the program’s success.


While the collaboration has been blossoming for four years, this year marks a significant milestone with the introduction of the curve collection.



Cui He, SHEIN’s Director of Europe, shared her excitement, emphasizing the brand’s commitment to furthering Dress For Success’ vision and looking forward to a future filled with impactful endeavors.

As autumn leaves begin to fall, and you find yourself on the hunt for refreshing workwear, Jill has curated a special edit featuring her top picks from the SHEIN’s sizes 16-24 collection.
