It all started last year when Holly Hyman overheard a high school student, telling a friend she couldn’t go to prom because she couldn’t afford a dress. That was all it took for Hyman to take some action. She put up a post on Facebook, and before she knew it, she had over 100 dresses.

Hyman brought the dresses she collected to Stamford High School for any girl who needed one, and that’s how the Cinderella Project was born. Last year, Hyman fitted about 50 girls for prom dresses. And she’s back at it again this year.  

On Thursday, Hyman brought the pop up boutique to AITE, where over a dozen girls took home dresses.  Sold for$20 each, proceeds from the dresses go back to the cause, assisting students with other prom-related costs.

Hyman will bring the store to Stamford High School on March 25, and she also hopes to get to Brian McMmahon in Norwalk. The Cinderella Project is also providing tuxedos and graduation dresses. To help out or donate some formal wear, contact Hyman at
