We are bringing visibility to disability and advocate for industry change.

ADAPTIVE RUNWAY SHOWS

 

Runway of Dreams produces adaptive runway shows that celebrate inclusion, highlight change in the fashion industry and empower people with disabilities with opportunity, confidence, independence and style.

WARDROBE GRANTS

 

We help people with disabilities look and feel great with financial grants for adaptive apparel or custom tailoring to meet their needs.

COLLEGE CLUBS

 

Students all over the country are joining our campaign for inclusion by starting Runway of Dreams Clubs on their campuses, increasing awareness, supporting people with disabilities in their communities, and raising funds to fuel our mission.

SCHOLARSHIPS

 

We invest in the future of functional fashion by providing scholarships to the next generation of students advancing adaptive design.

“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.”
