The fashion industry has made monumental strides in diversity and inclusion.
At the forefront of this movement is Runway of Dreams, an organization working with the fashion industry to adapt mainstream clothing for the differently-abled community. Partnering with top brands and designers, Runway of Dreams uses wearable technology to modify brand-name apparel, making fashion accessible for all.

Founder Mindy Scheier is joined by designer Lucy Jones and model Jillian Mercado, both ambassadors for Runway of Dreams, to share their stories and speak about what change has come over the past five years in the fashion industry.
