In this youtube video, I give 5 tips on what to wear on your legs. I explore what is comfortable, practical for my active and adventurous lifestyle and fashionable. I give some insight into the colours that I like at the moment, look at how one item can be used for a variety of looks, and give some ideas for wheelchair users in choosing clothes to wear as not all traditional clothes designs are ideal.
I focus on the practicality of clothes for travel and an active lifestyle so I go for clothes that do not crease and do not need to be ironed when I arrive at a destination. It means I can look good with minimal effort.
Take a look at the video in the link below, let me know what you think and give me feedback on the type of information you would like to see in future videos. I look forward to hearing from you. I hope that you enjoy it.
The good news in the world of fashion is: Tommy Hilfiger launched an adaptive fashion line for disabled people. It is the revolution happening. Take a look at the full article on the link below.
The fashion industry, despite its recent strides in diversity, isn’t known for its accessibility. There are very few brands who go out of their way to accommodate disabled people or those with limited mobility. In fact, it can be difficult to get into many pairs of jeans even when you’re able-bodied.
So it’s a real punch in the air that Tommy Hilfiger has just launched a collection specifically designed for disabled adults. It’s not their first foray into adaptive fashion – they launched a line for kids back in 2016. But this is their first time doing a sportswear line based off pieces from Tommy Hilfiger collections. We’re talking adjusted seams and openings.

It was exciting to be part of evolution in the fashion industry during 2017 London Fashion Week. To be invited by Models of Diversity to model designer Louise Linderoth’s range ‘Have a Seat’ in a Fashion Scout show was a dream come true. To then be featured by Vogue added to the excitement.
I trained as a model from the age of eight and have always been determined that my accident at the age of 14 would not take that dream away from me. I have done a lot of modeling but to be involved in London Fashion Week has been a long-standing ambition.
I loved modeling the designs of clothes developed by another wheelchair user and look forward to working with Louise again in the future.
It was also exciting to visit Old Spitalfields Market in the evening and support Models of Diversity fashion show with other disabled models and all range of diversity on the catwalk celebrating diversity in fashion.
