Form and Fashion: How One Idea Can Change the World

Mindy Scheier used her background in design to adapt a pair of jeans when her son Oliver, who has a rare form of muscular dystrophy that causes physical disabilities, wanted to wear jeans to school like his friends. The re-designed jeans met his needs, boosted his confidence, prompted Mindy launch Runway of Dreams, an adaptive clothing business. Runway of Dreams collaborated with Tommy Hilfiger on the first ever-mainstream adaptive clothing line for kids in Spring 2016 and the Runway of Dreams Foundation is working to create a world where fashion is mainstream and accessible for all. Part inspiration, part innovation, learn how one idea can change the world.
