Here is the final part of Personal Styling for Wheelchair Users with Yvonne Phillip. This series was so fun to make and we got very nice feedback with a lot of questions around clothes for wheelchair users that we think we are going to do it once a year. So if you have any questions or suggestions send them through and lets make a more complete video.
In part 5 we went shopping in charity shops to try to find clothes that are wheelchair friendly. I would like to say thanks to my niece Emily for filming everything and for being such a good friend and spending part of her holiday working as a camera girl. Also thank you to the charity we went to, Cancer Research, Mind and Shelter.
One of our messages here is that is possibleto be sustainable and to be fashionable at the same time and to minimise the effect we have in the world using reusable clothes. It will also make an impact on your pocket as well as helping somebody.
‘Sustainable fashion, also called eco fashion, is a part of the growing design philosophy and trend of sustainability, the goal of which is to create a system which can be supported indefinitely in terms of human impact on the environment and social responsibility’. This is the definition of sustainable fashion I found on Wikipedia. So we need to have in mind the impact our actions will have on the system in our world and be responsible for our choices.
Please let me know what you would like to see more on the channel. Have a great week.
I am coming here to share my new vlog with you from a photo shoot I did with Roy Ikoroha in the city centre. Vinnette Grant lent me her beautiful red dress for the shoot with “My Samsonite” case on my 40th birthday.
Guess what, we lost the balloons. I wasn’t too sad about that, as I would need to come back home with it behind my chair, looking a little strange kkkkkkkkk.
Also everyone was wishing Happy Birthday which was cute and weird. People are so friendly. I had a such good time. For more please look the video and leave your comments or suggestions. I really appreciate that.
Here we go, the second video of going through my wardrobe with Yvonne Phillips. This time we made a “private” fashion show only for you, putting a few pieces together and styling them with handbags, shoes and jewellery that we thought would “pop up” the look.
The video became too long so I made part 1 with trousers and jumpsuits and next week it will be around tops and jackets. Can’t wait to show you all.
I was so excited to receive my Samsonite cabin luggage and laptop bag back. The cabin suitcase is personalized and came with my initials “SB” on it. It combines strength with lightness and is perfect for me when travelling only with cabin baggage. In airports and shopping centres I can easily attach the case handle over my backrest and pull it along. The quality is high with a number of great features including a retractable identification label. It has lockable zips and soft touch handles.
The laptop backpack is just what I have been looking for. I wanted a stylish bag that allows me to safely carry my computer. It is made to the very highest standards and has it’s of pockets for all the items that I carry with me on a daily basis. I chose black to match the backrest
of my wheelchair and to provide versatility in matching the clothes I wear.
The “#”s they use in their socials are #generationgo #womensquad #mysamsonite all that I 100% support, please join the conversation.
I made a review on my youtube channel. I will attach the link below. The pictures in this blog are taken by Roy Ikoroha and this lovely red dress is by Vinnette Grant.
