Another successful event for Runway of Dreams in the books! I feel incredibly blessed to have been a part of this magical night. Adaptive clothing is so, so important to include in the fashion industry. As someone with a disability, we should never have to sacrifice style for convenience and practicality. Tommy Hilfiger recently joined forces with the Runway of Dreams mission to bring fashionable adaptive clothing into the mainstream media, and I couldn't be more excited to see what the future holds for the differently-abled community.
"Through your generosity, we raised over $1M from our corporate sponsors, individual donors and attending guests who donated during the live appeal. Funds raised from the Gala and throughout the year support charitable initiatives to broaden the reach of adaptive apparel and promote the differently-abled community in the fashion industry. Through adaptive clothing donations, employment opportunity initiatives, adaptive design workshops, awareness building campaigns and scholarship programs, the Runway of Dreams Foundation is empowering people with disabilities with opportunity, confidence, independence and style."
