Fashion is for everyone. Clothing can heal.

One of my biggest personal gripes with the fashion industry is how exclusionary it is – not just in size and price accessibility – but in pretension. Everyone wears clothing – yet the industry at large spends money + energy making folks feel left out, not good enough. They hope this is “aspirational” – that we will pay hand over fist to get an invite to the cool club. But for many folks – it just makes us not want to participate at all. No more. Not here. Fashion is for everyone. And it can heal. I’m so excited to…

It’s almost Christmas, but did you know that SmartGlamour’s clothing lines have a hidden “easter egg?” You may have noticed that many of our products have people’s names — that’s not just a stylistic choice; it’s a deliberate way in which we pay homage to the people who have made waves and pioneered the way forward throughout history.

In #FashionForAll, #AllMeansAll : Disability

One day I received an email from a cane user who told me she was in tears (happily) after seeing a model glamorously posing amidst the other models on my site, while using her cane. I won’t go into too many details, for the privacy of both her and my model – but suffice it to say, she had never seen that before, and this is why just one example of why representation is so important. There is so much “othering” happening in our society today – and a group that absolutely feels the brunt of it are disabled folks….
