“We want to help more students and spread this community as wide as we can. There is no greater feeling than helping others. Truly the smallest acts of kindness can go a long way.” -Rachael Russell Saiger

 

The goal of this annual event is to diminish the stress of going back to school from lower-income families, while also ensuring each child starts their first day with confidence. Every student had the chance to shop for brand new uniforms, shoes, backpacks, and school supplies from brands like Puma, Sketchers, Jordache, Fast Forward, State Bags, Juntos Project and Office Depot while complimentary beauty services were provided by IGK, Gee Beauty and Glam Squad and entertainment and food were donated by the Miami Heat, Event Depot, Hypemakerz, Zhantra, Frito Lay, Pizza Bar, Falafel Fresh, Bunnie Cakes, The Diplomat Hotel, Evian, Health-Ade Kombucha, Sweet Leaf Tea, and Pepsi.

“Style Saves began with the idea to unite fashion with philanthropy. Combining a talented, diverse community with a shared love for humanitarianism, the organization aimed at inspiring a fresh generation. Together with our fashion fundraisers, we host yearly events for the kids, including Project Prom, Back to School, a Holiday party, as well as trips to disaster areas to make sure people in those areas have everything they need. So, what really sets us apart is our charity through fashion concept and to find a way people can identify themselves to feel inspired to get involved and to give back.”
