Orelia partners with Smart Works for International Women’s Day
For the fourth year in a row, Orelia announced it will donate one item to Smart Works for every item sold between 6-12 March 2023 to mark International Women’s Day, which is celebrated globally on the 8 March.
In the last three years that Orelia has supported Smart Works charity during International Women’s Day, the brand has garnered an average of 1,500 jewellery items each year for Smart Works wardrobes.
Collette Flood, founder of Orelia, said: “We’re so honoured to continue to partner with Smart Works to support their incredible efforts and the women who they help. An outfit can bring so much self-confidence, allowing someone to feel like the best version of themselves, which is crucial for women who are in such a pivotal stage of seeking employment.
“It’s a privilege to work alongside Smart Works to add the finishing touch to a woman’s potentially life changing ‘back to work’ wardrobe.”
Smart Works is a UK charity that gives unemployed women the confidence to succeed at interviews, get the job and transform their lives. They believe in the power of clothes and coaching to transform a woman’s confidence, hope and possibility for a better future.
In supporting the global day of celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women, Orelia is helping Smart Works to ensure that women have access to a wardrobe that gives them the confidence needed when seeking employment. In addition to this partnership, Orelia will also continue to donate additional jewellery stock for Smart Works latest South London space in Croydon, which opened at the end of February 2023.
Kate Stephens, CEO of Smart Works, added: “Orelia has supported Smart Works for a number of years with generous stock donations for our clients across the country. A piece of jewellery can really make an outfit feel more personalised and bespoke to that individual.
“Our aim is to ensure all women feel the best version of themselves, so that they can walk into their interview with confidence and get the job. 2023 marks our 10th anniversary year and we’re grateful for the support of partners like Orelia, to ensure we can be ready to help any woman who needs our support to succeed at an interview.”
