Day 1: The Giving Closet-Knoxville
The Giving Closet arrived in Knoxville with a $10,000 wardrobe makeover planned for a deserving woman.
Sam Russell, celebrity stylist and founder of The Giving Closet, proved Hollywood fashion designers truly have a heart through their gorgeous, generous donations.
"I started a traveling mission back in 2011 to surprise women in need with a wardrobe upgrade valued at $10,000. I've been in Hollywood for 15 years working with celebrities like Stevie Wonder, Sophia Bush, Donna Mills and I had a light bulb moment that I could do so much more with my PR fashion resources so now I am," Russell explained to 10News Fashion Reporter Stoney Sharp.
The Giving Closet was founded on a very simple, yet powerful belief.
"I think if you empower every woman on the planet you then empower every child and you better their future. I really go on a hunt for women who are survivors. You hear so many great stories from nonprofits and social workers. There are so many women out there who could benefit from a hand up," the celebrity stylist said.
Russell joined forces with holistic relationship and lifestyle expert, Dr. Anjana of Knoxville, to make this Giving Closet mission extra special.
Dr. Anjana founded The Anjana Network.
"He gets to clothe the women in couture and fashion and make them feel really good, sexy and powerful," Dr. Anjana said. "I get to clothe them in wisdom and inspiration and build and stoke that ember into a fire that helps them to glow. In return, the clothes will look better on a woman who feels better about herself.
