2015 marked the 25th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This milestone sparked a conversation with Epicenter Community members with disabilities that explored what has changed in the past 25 years. The sentiment was that persons with disabilities remain virtually invisible in society and sense of inclusion is lacking. Many of the events celebrating 25 years were focused on disability, workforce developments & workplace accessibility.

To flip the script, Epicenter vowed to launch a series celebrating the beauty, humanity and innovative fashion design. Four amazing designers will design custom and fully functional pieces for models with a range of disabilities to highlight the importance of inclusive and accessible fashion.

Designers Ray Grand of Ray Grand Apparel, Joelle Fontaine of I Am Kreyol, Peda Edouard of Mathmatik Athletics and Jay Calderin of Boston Fashion Week will be designing custom pieces for our amazing models Heather Watkins, Keith Jones, Donald Washington, Cheri Blauwet, Eli Wolff, Laura Ferrone, Marty Harris, Brooks Bard, Jessica Mayer and Hailey Boyan!
