Parallel Global

As you probably know I am an ambassador for Parallel Global, formerly Parallel London. Parallel is growing & spreading to other cities.  If you don’t know Parallel Global it is a fully inclusive set of races for all ages and abilities with no cut off times. Participants can choose between a 10K, 5K, 1K, 100m, 3K walk (new) or the Super-Sensory 1k and take part in a festival of inclusive activities.

For the first two years it took place in the Olympic Park in London and this year it will be announced soon. It has just been announced that Parallel Glasgow will take place on the 2nd September in George Square.

There is also the opportunity to try different sports and activities.  You should check it out at their website http://www.parallellifestyle.com It is a true celebration of diversity and inclusivity.
Last I had the experience of giving a “Parallel Beats’ talk with my husband around our experience in inclusive sport: http://www.parallellifestyle.com/parallel-beats/

We did the Super-Sensory 1k together, I loved the bubbles and I am sure you will love to be part of it too. Come and join us!
I hope to see you at a Parallel event. Love Sam x samanta bullock wheelchair model parallel global london

Hi guys. This video gives you an insight into my visit to Naidex, Europe’s biggest disability trade show.  Watch me judge the Changing Lives competition, view an accessible motorhome, try a wheelchair that allows me to stand up and much more. I was wearing Peter Twiss jacket.

Please let me know your thoughts.

Love Sam

-Andrew Douglass CEO from Parallel London

-Caryn Franklin- Activist

-Deborah St Louise

-Edwin Mohney

-Samanta Bullock

Here is the link for the PodCast: https://m.soundcloud.com/saskia_rowlands/podcast-why-disability-is-still-not-fully-embraced-by-the-fashion-industry 

I also made a photo shoot on that day and I recorded everything to show you.

I hope you enjoy and please let me know why do you think the fashion Industry still didn’t embrace Disability.

How I Came Across the Wonderful Palta Clothes

Social Media is a place where you can share your life, express yourself and become part of a community. You see, on Instagram, there are millions of users; millions of users that may share your vision, beliefs, and interests. It’s those people that you can connect with and form a positive partnership.

That’s why I put so much effort into Instagram because it allows me to showcase my passion for fashion and push the industry further. How? Well, for instance, some time back a brand approached me to try some of their clothing. Of course, they wanted me to give them some feedback, but in return, I was able to adorn a lovely piece of clothing. That’s how a partnership can help the fashion industry.

That brand was Palta Clothes, and I’m so glad they reached out to me. They’re completely unique in the way they operate, and it’s refreshing to see the awesome work that they’re doing. Their brand mission is to create sustainable clothing that includes everyone around the world. Palta truly wants their clothing to unite the world and be accessible to those that face daily struggles.

So far, they’ve done a pretty incredible job. Not only do they focus on being eco-friendly and affordable, they’ve decided to design stunning clothing for those who are less fortunate. According to their presentation, they’re targeting young people, 253 million visually impaired people, 25 million amputees, and 67 million wheelchair users.

4 ways to wear a Palta tunic. AKHussainPhotography

Now, going back to my involvement with Palta, they provided me with a beautiful tunic that came in a gorgeous grey colour. The first thing I noticed was how brilliant the material was; it really felt like great quality. But, another thing which stood out was the versatility. I utilised the tunic in 4 different styles, and all of them looked super.

I adorned it with jeans for a casual look, on its own for comfort, with a belt to add some contrast and with a Peter Twiss jacket. I was so impressed with how they all appeared – I loved them! But, I gathered that when you choose Palta Clothes, you don’t just do it for the fashion. You join a brand that is pushing for a positive change across the world, and you are there to support them in their journey.

 

If you want to check out some of their clothing and learn more about their story, check out their website – www.paltaclothes.com. Alternatively, you can just hop onto Instagram and find them at ‘paltaclothes’.
