Happy Pride from Dress for Success Vancouver! 🌈

As Pride Month comes to a close, we celebrate our diverse community! Meet Elias Arce Gutierrez, a shining star who has joined Dress for Success Vancouver as both a client and as a volunteer.

Elias was first introduced to us through the MOSAIC I Belong program, seeking dressing services to emphasize and celebrate their identity. From the moment they stepped into our boutique, they were met with warmth and support. “My first appointment was in a friendly environment with acceptance and inclusivity,” Elias recalls. This experience boosted their confidence, allowing them to express their gender identity more freely. “Now I can wear skirts, and my favorite ones are from Dress for Success,” says Elias.

Not only has Elias benefited from our services, but they have also given back as a volunteer. They provide makeup workshops for clients and also helped with a special Mother’s Day client event. “Enhancing other people’s own beauty is what I love to do. Their smile at the end of the session is my reward,” says Elias.

We’re incredibly grateful for Elias and the positivity they bring. As we celebrate Pride Month and the wonderful people in our community, let’s embrace and uplift every individual’s unique journey and expression. οΈβ€πŸŒˆβœ¨

Dress for Success VancouverΒ is honoured to empower and celebrate our community’s diversity. Thank you, Elias, for sharing your story and for your fabulous contributions.
