Tailored for Education: How Celia Grace gives back with each dress purchase

As Nelson Mandela once said, education is the most powerful tool in the world.

That’s why we partner with Tailored for Education to make a contribution with every purchase of our wedding dresses. We believe our dresses have the ability to impact not only our dressmakers, but also the children who live in their communities.

Every day millions of children are unable to attend school because they do not have the mandatory uniform. Tailored for Education is working to change that by providing school uniforms to children in developing countries where they are required to attend. The average cost of a uniform is only $25. via Tailored for Education

To date, Tailored for Education has provided 54,224 school uniforms. Uniforms may seem arbitrary to a bridal line’s interest, but our passion and core ethics drive us to see our impact on the environment and society through Celia Grace wedding dresses in a variety of facets.

While the majority of schools we work with are privately funded, they typically still require the family to pay a small tuition and cover the cost of the uniform. Only a small percentage of schools where we work are completely free. Sadly, the uniform cost coupled with the tuition is too much for the families, preventing children from attending school. Often, a child begins primary school but for financial reasons has to stop and go to work before secondary school. An erratic stop-and-go attendance is thus created; clearly not a proper or effective education. via Tailored for Education
