We are honored to be part of The Adaptive Exhibit led by Runway of Dreams Club at Marist College in New York and to promote fashion for people with disabilities.
"The purpose of this exhibit is to spread the mission of the Runway of Dreams organization to empower people with disabilities through fashion inclusion", as explained in the @runwayofdreamsmarist press release. The Runway of Dreams Foundation empowers disabled people to have confidence and self-expression through fashion and beauty inclusion. Their focus is to raise awareness, educate consumers, advocate for industry change, and develop the next generation of innovators.
Runway of Dreams is rethinking the runway with global adaptive fashion shows that celebrate people’s differences, break down stereotypes and empower people with disabilities with confidence, independence, and style.
The Adaptive Exhibit at Marist College is just one of the many college exhibits and runways where adaptive fashion from a variety of different companies and brands from around the world are being showcased, including MAI We Care. All with the same mission: to empower people with disabilities through fashion inclusion.
Runway of Dreams College Clubs are developing exhibits like this one, that in return drive multi-generational change in the fashion industry. They also host panel discussions with adaptive apparel experts, advocates and people with disabilities and organize adaptive runway shows on their campuses featuring local models of diversity in backgrounds and disabilities.
At MAI We Care, we are so thankful and honored to be showcased in the Runway of Dreams Club at Marist Adaptive Fashion Gallery Exhibit. We are sure that events like this will help spread this mission around the world.
The exhibit has been made possible by key individuals in Marist's Fashion Program as well as the Runway of Dreams Foundation, especially Mindy Scheier, Dawn Schwartz, and Jeanine Cramblett.
The Adaptive Exhibit will be opened from January 26 through March 12, 2023 from 5:00 – 7:00 pm at the Steel Plant Gallery at Marist College in New York.
