The six diners look out over St Kilda, they’ve just enjoyed fine wine and food cooked for them by one of Melbourne’s great chefs, but this dinner party was a little different.
All the guests had arrived wearing the same thing!
Fashion disaster I hear you say?! Wrong – fashion success!
If purchasing this fabulous dinner cooked by Cary Thomson, head chef at Society Restaurant, at the One Girl gala dinner didn’t support women and girls enough, this group of diners decided to Do It in a Dress!
Boys and girls donned school dresses and spent an afternoon and evening watching Cary Thomson do his thing in the kitchen and learning a few things along the way.
Do it in a Dress Champion Jackie Clingan was the one who convinced her fellow diners to wear dresses and she said the night was a raging success!
“It made us all realise how lucky we are and how easy it is to do something to help other people,” she said.
Her friends, boys and girls, embraced being in the dresses and they were excited to be involved in a “change the world” project!
So if you think you can ‘change the world’ by wearing a dress then register to Do It In A Dress.
You don’t have to do anything extreme, of course you can if you want to, you could simply eat dinner, get a coffee, go to work or do some shopping and you would be ensuring a girl gets her right to an education.
So come on, what are you waiting for? Do It in A Dress!
