WOW Factor

In an effort to raise funds and awareness for Dress for Success Houston, Women of Wardrobe (WOW) celebrated its highest-grossing evening at the 14th annual Tootsies Summer Soiree. KHOU’s Mia Gradney played emcee for the evening and Dress for Success Vice President Lauren Levicki Courville shed light on the lasting impact the organization will have on over 3,500 women this year. Dressed in “haute” summer looks, over 300 guests perused the trendy West Avenue store where eye-catching fashions by Parker and jewels by Lisa Freede were on display, along with a very popular “bundt wall” — exclusively handcrafted by Nothing Bundt Cakes and donated to Dress for Success — where guests were welcome to handpick their preferred flavor right off the wall.
