Ann Mahoney may be part of one of the hottest shows on television, but she is not too ‘Hollywood’ to admit she creates her couture on a budget with the help of Goodwill®.

Unlike any other couture designer, he uses recycled parachutes for his dress fabric. Dyrdahl said, "When I was contacted about the possibility of making Ann Mahoney’s premier gown I was immediately intrigued. I love The Walking Dead, so there was immediate interest. When I spoke with Ann directly I could tell at once that she was "my kind of people. " As we talked about the dress ideas I was sold - "I have to do this!" Ann fits so well with my design aesthetic - I am honored to have her wearing one of my creations. "

“I have a unique style, so I always want my children to look unique too. I love shopping at Goodwill. Kids clothes are not cheap to buy, this way my kids get one of a kind outfits and more of them for less money.” Says Mahoney.

“I bought four items, a lace dress, two patterned skirts and a purple top. 
I wanted to try and make two different dresses. The items cost me just $9. I already had some basic patterns, but there are also some great websites that offer free patterns. I cut the bodice for the Brooklyn Empire dress out of two different fabrics. The under fabric is from the purple top; the outer fabric is the lace. A delicate lace fabric can cost as much as $14 a yard, so this dress was a great find.” 

It may seem like a simple task getting rid of clothes you have outgrown or no longer wear. However when you donate you become a job creator. The money raised from these donations helps with job training and other beneficial services across the nation.

Parachuting onto the Red Carpet at Walking Dead Premiere

Ann Mahoney may be part of one of the hottest shows on television, but she is not too ‘Hollywood’ to admit she creates her couture on a budget with the help of Goodwill®.

Donations are a large part of the work done by Horizon Goodwill. Items that are donated create so many opportunities for people in their local communities to get a job and build new skills. In 2015, more than 300,000 people started a new career through Goodwill donations, giving them access to the financial support they need and a new big family at Goodwill.

“Donations are essential to our mission of removing barriers, and creating opportunities. Each bag of donations allows us to create one hour of work training. In 2015, our Donated Goods program paid over $3 million in wages, benefits, and taxes to people with disabilities and other barriers to employment,” Horizon Goodwill CEO John McCain

“I love reusing resources and making new unique designs for my petite fashionista. Shopping at Goodwill helps veterans, military families, and single parents to get jobs in their local communities,” says Mahoney.

“I am thrilled that Ann Mahoney wants to share her Goodwill experience with others. I am a huge fan of the show, it’s one of my guiltily pleasures. Goodwill is less of a shopping experience and more of a treasure hunt. We appreciate Ann sharing the creative items she creates with her finds from Goodwill.” Adds McCain.

Celebrity Fashion

Walking Dead actress Ann Mahoney took to the red carpet at Madison Square Garden in New York City for the premiere of the show in a gown made of recycled parachutes.

Mahoney said, “I’m humbled to have been asked to go to the premiere and ecstatic about the red carpet with all the excitement that surrounds event."
Mahoney says she looked for a dress that wasn’t the normal “off the rack” look stores make for plus size women. She set her sights on something that would be edgy and couture.
The actress believed up and coming designer Andrew Dyrdahl’s dresses would be perfect for the occasion. Dyrdahl’s designs are unique in every facet of the word.


Ms. Mahoney has also chosen a unique jewelry designer to create her necklace. She felt that something original and sustainable was important for the event. Amber Hatchett’s designs came to mind immediately. Hatchett creates jewelry out of bullet casings. Hatchett said, "Ann’s excitement for projects at hand is contagious and her love for acting so inspirational. It's an honor to be a part of Ann's journey in such a unique way. The answer was easy when asked to create a statement jewelry piece for such a sweet person who enjoys their career as much as she does. To be able to pair my sustainable jewelry with the likes of Andrew Dyrdahl's sustainable design is just an added bonus.”

Ann Mahoney is a significant rising star in the industry. She is not only a regular character on THE WALKING DEAD but has been cast in the award-winning show, RECTIFY. Additionally, Mahoney is in the new film 99 HOMES which hits theaters in September. The actress is also known for her roles in films such as BIG MAMA’S HOUSE 2, BAREFOOT, and FRANKENSTEIN.
