When one thinks of Dress for Success Indianapolis we automatically think of a local organization that provides disadvantaged women with the appropriate interview attire. It’s definitely more than suits, pumps and handbags. In addition to providing an interviewing outfit for their clients, Dress for Success also provides powerful programming geared to provide support for women such as the Professional Women’s Group.
On Friday, September 5th, the 12th anniversary of Stepping Out in Style fundraiser sponsored by PNC Bank was held at the JW Marriott Indianapolis. A fundraising goal of $200,000 was exceeded that evening thanks to the generosity of guests, sponsors and the matching campaign of RJE Business Interiors. Dollars generated that evening supports the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
From a technical standpoint, the event featured 16’x9’ Focal Point screens with 14K Christie projectors. To reduce the projection distance, ultra-short Christie lenses were installed. Live images were captured using a 100% high-definition video system that included Sony HXC-100 cameras with Canon sports lensing. The show was recorded in MPEG4 format using AJA Ki Pro recording system. For the fashion show portion of the event, Arri lighting fixtures were installed to illuminate the 60-foot model runway.
