GirlUp GVL and Marleylilly Fashion Show

Marleylilly is honored to partner with a local organization right here in the Upstate, GirlUp GVL.  Each day at GirlUp GVL, girls are connecting, growing, learning, and flourishing with their peers and mentors who share a passion for their happiness, success, and dignity. GirlUp GVL provides an after-school program, a weekly enrichment program, as well as Individual Success Planning, focused on each girl's personal goals and future success.  This blog post will recap the amazing week that was fashion week!
