My story on Daily Mail

Paralympian left wheelchair-bound when she accidentally SHOT herself makes her runway debut – after being told disabled people ‘couldn’t model’

  • Samanta Bullock became paralysed at the age of 14 after shooting herself   
  • She had been handling her father’s shotgun when it accidentally went off 
  • Dreamed of being a model but was told she couldn’t do it in a wheelchair 
  • Last month made her debut on the runway at London Fashion Week  

A Paralympian who was left paralysed after shooting herself with a shotgun has achieved her dream of appearing at Fashion Week after being told wheelchair users couldn’t model.

Samanta Bullock, 39, from Mortlake, London, always longed to walk the catwalk for the infamous international event but was frequently rejected and told it was due to being ‘disabled’.

While admiring and playing with her father’s shotgun, it accidentally fired paralysing her and nearly claimed her life.

She was lucky to survive her accident at 14, when she accidentally shot herself with her father’s shotgun, severing her spinal cord as well as damaging her liver and pancreas.

Samanta said: ‘I was playing with my father’s gun and I shot myself by mistake, it was very sad what happened.

‘The bullet hit my spine and severed my spinal cord as well as hitting the liver, pancreas and other areas, it was a miracle I survived.

‘I was so panicked, thinking I was going to die at the time that when I was told that I would never walk again before my operation it didn’t matter.’

For years she underwent rehabilitation and physiotherapy to regain the strength to perform basic activities like sitting up, moving from bed to chair and more.

She went on to become the best wheelchair tennis player in Brazil, competing internationally but had her modeling dreams cast aside after being rejected because she couldn’t ‘walk’.

4 different outfits – Blue Dress

4 different outfits – Blue Dress

Are you a light traveller or a busy workwoman? So am I! That’s why we need clothes that can be versatile, comfortable, easy to mix and match… All at the same time.

Few pieces can give us such comfort feeling, and I personally think that there is a kind of freedom in wearing something that can become something else in 2 minutes. Or less.

That is the reason I chose this blue dress and a bunch of accessories to play with. Guess what I ended up with? 4 different outfits! Amazingly, all of them very comfortable and stylish. Yay!

In compositions like this, we can add accessories to improve the look and change it up. Or just decide that is better off to go out just with the dress. Simple, beautiful, perfect.

4Different Ways to Wear a Dress

The best and maybe the cheapest way to change an entire set is to play with the accessories. Go crazy with your imagination, babe. Why not? The sky is the limit, and in this case, the sentence fits perfectly. Like the clothes, haha.

You cannot go wrong getting something bigger and more sparkling for the night, and something lighter and chic – or hippie – for the day.

Shoes are mandatory and make all the difference no matter what kind of vibe moves you. From boots to sandals, from flats to flip-flops. See? I  could also have played with colours and try red or yellow ones. That would work perfectly with the blue, making a lovely contrast. And I love contrasts.

Whatever your style is, nude or black is always austere and both goes well with everything. Check my metal belt over the shirt on photo #2. I tried to play safe here but, at the same time, keep the not-so-distinct aura. Mission accomplished.

Jeans is another thing that makes an outfit more fun and casual, and also fits extremely well with the colour blue. Talking directly to wheelchair users, but not excluding anyone, dresses are the most friendly piece you can have because of their easy to put in and go out characteristics of them. You can always wear more than 1 pair of tights under. Or none, if you prefer in the summertime.

Just remember not to wear extremely long dresses with the fabric touching the floor. You really do not want your beautiful clothes to clean the floor all around when you pass by.

4 Different Ways to Wear the Same Dress

For the third look, I wore the dress with a hippie style waistcoat, what turned the dress into a  long skirt.In the near future, I will make a post wearing the same dress with different colours and accessories, so you guys will have an idea of how dynamic it can be. So much fun! Stay tuned.

Again, remember to not be afraid to play and take the most out of your closet. Fashion is about feeling comfortable and empowered, and showing your style and mood for the day. Keep that in mind and you’ll never regret.

Finally, the fourth picture is the dress itself. No accessories, no components, no nothing to compete with the piece. The main reason I like this kind of dress is the fact that it does not need to be ironed, thanks to the fabric material.  Top notch choice to travel, take a note on this!

Now it’s your turn to tell me what’s on your mind. Go to the comments and express your opinion on the clothes, the accessories, what you want me to try for the next posts… I am willing to bring other styles, trends and looks for you to check out and try yourself. After all, fashion is for everyone. See you soon, babe! 😉
