Founded on the basis that clothing is a basic human need, Runway of Dreams empowers people with disabilities with confidence and self-expression through fashion and beauty inclusion.
CAMPAIGN FOR INCLUSION
We are bringing visibility to disability and advocate for industry change.
We celebrate people's
differences, break down
stereotypes, highlight the
need for mainstream adaptive apparel and showcase people with disabilities in fashion.
We invest in the future of adaptive design and innovation.
We educate and engage next generation leaders in equity and inclusion.
We help people with disabilities look and feel great with financial grants for adaptive apparel or custom tailoring to meet their needs.
“It was a defining moment for me when my son started caring
about what he wears – like I do everyday – but realized his options were
limited because of his leg braces and inability to manage buttons
and zippers. As a fashion designer, I knew I could do something
to solve his problem. As a mother, I also knew this problem
was much bigger than just Oliver and me.”
- Mindy Scheier
