Kiyonna Clothing Goes Above and Beyond the Rack with Dignity U Wear
Anaheim, CA – February 26, 2010 – Each season due to overproduction or lack of salability, manufacturers are left with racks of excess merchandise in perfect condition. In a collaborative effort, plus size manufacturer Kiyonna Clothing has donated over 500 new dresses and career separates to Florida-based charity organization, Dignity U Wear.
Dedicated to positively impacting the lives of children and their families, Dignity U Wear distributes the newly acquired apparel to those in need with the hopes of restoring a new sense of hope. For the last five years, Kiyonna has worked alongside with Dignity U Wear to provide curvy women new dresses, tops and bottoms in sizes 10-32.
“We have tremendous appreciation for Kiyonna and for their generous clothing donations. As a result of Kiyonna’s philanthropic spirit, Dignity U Wear has been able to provide lovely apparel for our plus size recipients facing traumatic time in their lives. These beautiful garments give ladies the dignity needed to pursue a career to help support themselves and their families.” says Karin Bunnell, Director of Procurement, Dignity U Wear.
Allocating off season merchandise and preparing them for distribution is no small feat. A welcome annual challenge for this plus size powerhouse, every Kiyonna team member partakes in this organizing and packing process. “Donating to an organization like Dignity U Wear gives an amazing feeling! I know that at the end of the day, I work for a company full of women with big hearts, and there is nowhere else that I would want to work. I get to come to work and help someone else, that makes me feel like there is good in the world and everyone deserves a piece of it!” Michelle Wright, Operations Specialist, Kiyonna Clothing
For a company that prides itself on “not just selling a product, but a feeling,” Kiyonna truly believes that all curvy women deserve to look stylish and feel amazing. The seamless collaboration between Kiyonna and Dignity U Wear transcends any fashion trend and has great longevity.
A leader in the plus size clothing industry, Kiyonna™ has styled curvy women with its collection of contemporary plus size dresses and separates since 1996. This modern yet feminine label offers styles exclusively in sizes 0x-5x. These well-edited silhouettes can be found online and in specialty plus size clothing stores across the country and beyond.
