Styled by a Child
Posted 5/03/22 (Tue)
Let the styling begin!
Styled by a Child is an innovative and engaging fundraiser for the North Dakota Women’s Network (NDWN).
During the week of May 2-6, 2022, adults will hand over all styling decisions to young people in their life. The adult will post the styles online and wear these styles everywhere for that day. Teams set a fundraising goal and ask friends and family to donate for the five days of styling.
We will end the week with a fashion show where teams will show off their favorite look from the week or a special runway look. We are excited to announce two very special guests for this year’s Styled by a Child Fashion show. Senator Heidi Heitkamp will be joining us for the social, along with Season 6 Voice contestant Kat Perkins. Kat will be signing autographs during the social and will emcee the fashion show portion of the event.

Styled by a Child is the brainchild of Katie Aitchison, a member of the NDWN, and Renee Stromme, founder of the NDWN. In June 2015 each mother let their 5-year-old daughters style them, head to toe, for one week. The process was fun, engaging and inspired them to turn it into an event for others to join in the fun.
Funds raised will be used for a variety of NDWN programs including:
NDWN Youth Action Council - engaging the next generation of advocates.
Their work includes the ND Period Project and Art Empowered: a Camp for Kids.
WE Rise - our free hands-on advocacy training and women's lobby day
that helps attendees navigate the state’s policy-making process.
Ready to Run - a bi-partisan program for women who want to run for
office, seek higher office, work on a campaign, or get appointed to office.
NDWN Awards Celebration - an event to celebrate the work and accomplishments of outstanding women in our state.
