With a background in fashion, I am passionate about inclusive fashion and leading a healthy and active lifestyle. I live in London and am sharing my knowledge and life experiences to raise awareness of inclusion, fashion, and healthy lifestyles. I have been in a wheelchair since 1992 and played wheelchair tennis from 2003 until 2009 representing Brazil and winning a doubles silver medal at the 2007 Para Pan Am Games.
I have had the chance to participate in London Fashion Week, Fashions Finest, International Dubai Fashion Week, Spoken London Fashion Week and London Alternative Fashion Week.
As part of my journey to make fashion more accessible to everyone and more representative I have been speaking in a number of conferences, events and schools. Fashion has the power to normalise things and embrace equality. Its has been hard work pushing for inclusion but a meaningful one and I am making it part of my journey.
While the fashion industry has been making some positive changes in terms of diversity of late, there is still some way to go when it comes to creating fashion fit for all. Hear our expert panellists discuss how fashion can become more inclusive.
