Turning fashion challenges into fashion victories

Hi there, classy friends!

Back in December, we hosted a really fun Twitter Chat event. The topic of course was…FASHION! Participants were great about sharing their personal fashion victories as well as challenges.

Sometimes overcoming a fashion challenge for a person with a physical disability is very simple. It doesn’t always require reinventing the wheel.

One participant, Reveca Torres, raved how one clothing retailer turned her fashion challenge into a fashion victory by hemming her awesome new yoga pants for her – free of charge!

The praise-worthy retailer is, Athleta! They specialize in women’s active wear and offer a variety of body positive sizes that includes Plus, Petite, and Tall. Also, they will hem your pants if you need them to!

This week’s fashion accessibility shout out goes to, Athleta!

Keepin’ it classy,

Jane Hash, Co-Founding Director
