I am the World’s first quadriplegic designer designing inclusive fashion. I am also an artist, advocate and lawyer, wife and mum. In August 2019 I placed my art work on Fabric and designed a small collection of accessible pieces for exhibition at a gallery in Brisbane. Thereafter I was invited to design a collection of 9 pieces to open an event for the Mercedes Benz Fashion festival Brisbane. I had a total of 12 weeks and all whilst running my own law practice and juggling my role as wife and mum. I have received an overwhelmingly positive response from around the world and much encouragement to launch my own label. My emphasis is on inclusive fashion, many of my designs can be worn by able-bodied as well as persons with disability. I believe people with disability have been left out of the fashion conversation and I want to change that. I like to say “I may be on wheels, but my fashion moves me forward”
High quality, SUPER COMFORT, designed for getting out of your COMFORT ZONE !
Blind Grit celebrates the qualities required to live with disability & survive trauma, as some of the qualities we most admire, value & aspire to. It’s a celebration of those SUPER HUMANS who have been forced to survive outside a comfort zone that most of us take for granted.
Blind Grit is built entirely of & around those who live with disability & survive trauma. All the aspirational, fun, dream jobs that sit behind the creation of a fashion label, will be done by those who live with disability & survive trauma; including the modelling, photography, PR, social media, graphic design, hair & make up artistry, styling, web design & management & of course the designing itself – everything but the manufacturing !
Every Blind Grit garment is infused with challenge-conquering energy, empowering you to get out of your comfort zone & tap into your own inner SUPER HUMAN: mentally, emotionally, physically.
What Do You Need To Conquer ? … Run further, be stronger, reach higher, stay focused, dig deeper, fear less, give more …
We are a comfort driven society. Why wouldn’t we be !? However, some of the qualities we most admire, value & aspire to, are only accessible outside our comfort zone: see it, value it, live it ! … for yourself & others.
