Runway of Dreams Foundation (RODF) was founded in 2014 by
Mindy Scheier - a fashion designer and mother of a child with
a disability. Her journey began when her son Oliver, who has a
rare form of Muscular Dystrophy, wanted to wear jeans to school
like his friends, but couldn’t manage the buttons or zippers. She
realized then that millions of people around the world must also be
struggling to access fashionable clothing that meets their needs.
She began to envision a world where all styles of clothing were
available with modifications that would make them accessible for
people with disabilities. After spending 20 years in the fashion
industry and opening a design school for kids, Mindy decided to
combine her experience and her passion to address this unmet
need by founding the Runway of Dreams Foundation.
