These well developed niche markets now account for Billions of dollars of sales each year. The Fashion needs of one group that is yet to be addressed is that of People with disabilities. As I write this, disabled Athletes from all around the Commonwealth have just finished competing in the 2010 Commonwealth Games. In 2012 the Paralympics will be held in London. Most of these world class athletes have a 'day job' as well and need clothing that addresses the use of prosthetics or wheelchairs ; single hand function and a wide range of other issues. Where do these athletes and others with disabilities find clothing designed for Fashion and to meet their needs? This is the goal of Fashion Moves. We will convene a conversation between Designers, Paralympic and Amateur Athletes, Business professionals, parents and kids. Through our Internet Radio programme we will provide design ideas and reveal the lifestyles of many active People with disabilities. Garment, Fashion and Textile Industry news and tidbits will lead at the top of the show. Drop in and have a listen. Let us know your thoughts about Fashion Moves and tell us about people you think we should interview.
