A Bacardi “Night of Art + Fashion” officially kicked off Dress for Success Miami’s 25th Anniversary

A Bacardi “Night of Art + Fashion” officially kicked off Dress for Success Miami’s 25th Anniversary

On Saturday, October 6, The Bacardi Women in Leadership initiative hosted a “Bacardi Night of Art & Fashion” at the American Museum of the Cuban Diaspora. The evening served as the official kick-off celebration for the 25th anniversary of Dress for Success Miami.

Guests were the first to preview pieces from the “Celia Forever” exhibit. VIP guests further indulged their senses in a private cognac, whisky and cigar lounge hosted by Bacardi brands and attended an exclusive fashion show featuring a Rene by RR collection, from famed Cuban fashion designer and Miami International University of Art & Design alumnus, René Ruiz. The fashion show was produced by Charlene Parsons, director of the Fashion Department at Miami International University of Arts & Design.

After the runway show, guests then gathered on the museum’s rooftop terrace for live music, passed hors d’oeuvres, sweet treats by Unique Designer’s Cake and witnessed a live mural painting come to life by Ecuadorian artist Alejandra Estefania.

Throughout the evening, the museum gave away tickets to the star-studded opening night of the new exhibit, along with museum passes and merchandise. Guests had the opportunity to bid on the silent auction and try their luck at a raffle.

The evening raised $14,000 for Dress for Success Miami. See the full photo album on Facebook >

Meet Our Staff: Destiny Reynolds

Suited for Success’s Executive Assistant, Destiny Reynolds, started as a volunteer in our boutique. Her positivity and style went a long way in encouraging and preparing our clients to look their best for their interviews. She joined our staff in 2016, and manages our Career Center and referral agencies.

Q: Can you tell us about yourself?
A: My name is Destiny Reynolds. I enjoy giving back, traveling, and the creative arts. I am from central Ohio. I have a love for nature and family history. I have a BA in history and a minor in business.

Q: What was the transition from Ohio to Miami like?
A: It was a natural transition. Initially I was contracted to assist with art exhibitions during Art Miami and Art Basel.

Q: Can you tell us about your journey from volunteer to Executive Assistant?
A: The journey from volunteer to Executive Assistant has been a great experience. It allowed for a hands-on experience and a better understanding of our clients.

Q: What are some of your passions outside of the office?
A: My passions outside of the office are health and fitness plus creating for my small business.

Q: What have you learned from interacting with clients on a daily basis?
A: Interacting with our clients on a daily basis has taught me that most are appreciative of our services. They usually leave confident and empowered to get the job. It assures me that we are completing our mission.

Q: Can you talk about one moment at Suited for Success / Dress for Success Miami that uplifted or encouraged you?
A: A moment that uplifted me at Suited for Success / Dress for Success Miami happened recently. Not only did we help underprivileged students with interview suitings, but we were also able to help them with nice prom dresses and tuxedos. The students were not expecting so much and seemed overwhelmed with joy. It was a very rewarding moment.

Q: Can you tell us about managing the Career Center and how these services impact clients?
A: I manage the career center effectively by staying organized with both the volunteers and the clients. I follow-up with both parties both before and after their appointments. The clients are usually engaged with our volunteers and eager to learn how to modify a resume. They learn a lot from our volunteers’ expertise.

Q: What do you hope for your future with Dress for Success?
A: I hope to grow with the company in recruiting for the career center. Plus, produce more behind the scenes content for our social media channels.
