Unfortunately, the fashion industry is one of exclusion more often than inclusion. Rarely do you see any model on a runway or in a product shoot who has special needs. I wanted Hemmed In to be different in that way, specifically.
Then I met Autumn; a local children's store owner who happens to be the grandmother of one of my Hemmed In models: a sweet, spunky little Lady who has Down Syndrome and a beautiful smile. (pictured above)
Last year, Autumn spearheaded an inclusive Fashion Show with children from all over Denver who have Special Needs, and has big plans to continue it for years to come. I was there, I LOVED it, and I wrote all about it in the blog here.
SO, not to miss out on being a part of this support & awareness-raising month, I'm donating 10% of ALL SALES this week to the Proud To Be Me Fashion Show.
Please Help us show our love & support by shopping!!
Shop here on Hemmed In with Site-Wide FREE Shipping, and be a part of celebrating individuals with Down Syndrome!
