Guest post from Katherine Sparkes of the Flamingo Foundation.
Looking good is a big part of feeling good. It’s important for all us, which is why the Flamingo Foundation has launched the Find my Style project, offering free personal styling sessions to young disabled adults.
The first session, which will be held in London on 10 February, will be led by fashion stylist and master image consultant Hannah Jean. Hannah will be working with the group to boost body confidence, help people find their own sense of style, and explore how items of clothing can be adapted to meet their needs.
She’ll also showcase some of the key styles for Spring/Summer 2014 and at the end, there will be a chance to try out some of the latest looks and take part in a fashion photo-shoot.
“Image and confidence in what we wear can make a huge difference, but young disabled people can feel removed from the fashion scene and find it difficult to find on-trend clothes that suit their style and their body,” says Hannah.
“This project is a fantastic way to open up the world of fashion and demonstrate that everyone can find or adapt clothes to show off their individuality and tastes.”
The first workshop will be geared towards ages 18-35, and will take place at The Pirate Castle, Oval Road, Camden, London NW1 7EA on 10 February, between 2-4pm If you’d like to take part, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm your free place.
