There are 1.2 million wheelchair users in the UK and yet the availability of wheelchair user friendly fashion is often overlooked.
Faduma’s Fellowship’s purpose is to inspire designers, design educational institutions, shake-up the fashion industry as a whole and the media that covers it to see, acknowledge and embrace wheelchair users. “So that all wheelchair users can participate in, and see themselves rightly reflected in, this joyful aspect of our shared cultural life.”
This is an incredible project where Faduma selects one winner from a huge list of applicants to support her on their campaign, creating amazing pieces to help to break down the walls between fashion and those less able. You can learn more about it here.
