New York, NY – April 9, 2014 – OSP Group, the direct to consumer market leader in women’s and men’s plus-size apparel and home/lifestyle products, announced today that it has entered a formal partnership with Dress for Success®, an international non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of women. Located in more than 130 cities and 16 countries, Dress for Success® provides professional attire, a network of support and career development tools to promote economic independence of disadvantaged women.
OSP Group, through well-known brands including: Woman Within®, Roaman’s®, Jessica London® and OneStopPlus.com®, offers the most extensive fashion collections specifically designed to fit and flatter a woman’s curvy figure—filling a niche for the 62 percent of American women wearing a size 14 or larger. OSP Group has been a long-time supporter of Dress for Success®, responding to their ongoing need for plus-size clothing by donating thousands of plus-size suits and shoes for women who have secured a job interview, or landed a new job. And, with affiliate Dress for Success® locations near OSP Group’s headquarters in New York City and the company’s Indianapolis, IN, facility, volunteer opportunities for employees will further strengthen this relationship.
“We are extremely proud to partner with Dress for Success® as their mission to empower women closely aligns with OSP Group’s commitment to provide fashionable clothing options that help women feel confident, regardless of their size,” said Stephanie Sobel, President, OSP Group. “OSP Group team members are committed to the Dress for Success® mission and are looking forward to developing a deeper involvement with this outstanding organization as career coaches, personal shoppers and mentors, positively impacting Dress for Success® clients in the local communities where we work and live.”
“Dress for Success® serves women of all shapes and sizes, but the generous clothing donation from OSP Group will allow us to better cater to the unique needs of a key demographic that we serve—our full-figured clients—as we help them fulfill their professional dreams,” said Joi Gordon, CEO, Dress for Success Worldwide. “The greater partnership with OSP Group will ensure that we are able to make more women feel confident about what’s on the inside and out as they enter or re-enter the workforce.”
