Jillian Mercado, sassy and classy

Happy Monday, classy friends!

This week’s fashion accessibility shout out goes to a remarkable woman who rolled onto the fashion scene by paving her own way with her fashion blog, Manufactured 1987.

Jillian Mercado’s sparkling personality, edgy style, and huge social media following keep her moving fashion forward.

In 2014 she modeled for Diesel’s “modern-day rebels, heroes and just cool people” campaign. It was hugely successful. This put images of a fashion model that is also a wheelchair-user in multiple mainstream publications.

Things didn’t slow down for Mercado in 2015. That is when she signed on with IMG Models, which is the international leader in model management and talent discovery.

This is what Jillian Mercado has to say about Classy Little Fashions Foundation. “Feeling great in your own skin is such a great feeling and Jane wants everyone to feel that way too through Classy Little Fashions Foundation

By doing what Mercado is doing…living her authentic-self and busting through barriers, she is teaching those in the fashion industry how to work with models that have disabilities. This is one of the many reasons she deserves a fashion accessibility shout out!

Keepin’ it classy,

Happy Monday, classy friends!

Are you excited to find out who this week’s fashion accessibility shout out goes to? I’m sure excited to tell you!

The fashion requirements of people with disabilities are as unique as our personalities. With this many untapped niche markets, there is no way one company or nonprofit could fulfill everyone’s fashion needs. That’s why Classy Little Fashions Foundation strives to be a team player by promoting others who are making fashion more accessible.

Rolli-Moden

It is very inspiring to see that this fashion accessibility trend is going global! This week’s shout out goes to a company based in Germany, called Rolli-Moden! They sell functional and fashionable clothing and accessories for average sized men and women who are wheelchair-users.

Please share this post on your social media platforms with the hashtag #FashionAccessibility and help keep this movement rolling forward!

Classy Little Fashions Foundation is a service oriented non-profit organization. We understand that the niche’ we cater to do deals with more frustrating challenges on a day-to-day basis than the average person. Part of our mission is to make our Classy Client’s lives a little bit easier by making fashionable adult clothing accessible to them – as conveniently as possible. This is why we are quick to respond and update our methods of delivering services when would-be Classy Clients bring issues and suggestions to our attention.

Second, we are making it so easy to order our Classy Jeans… you’ll want to order at least two pairs! Many have expressed that they found our order form rather intimidating because of the extra measurements required. The last thing CLFF wants to do is make your life stressful. From now on, a Classy Little Fashions Foundation representative will fill your Classy Jeans order form out for you! All you have to do is email us and schedule a video chat appointment.
