Runway of Dreams Creator Found her Hero Within

Recently I read an article about this great fashion brand, Runway of Dreams, and I had to share this story with you.  It is the best example of finding your Hero Within!

Mindy Scheier is a mother of three children and a fashion designer.  One of her sons has special needs wherein he has to wear braces on his legs to assist with his mobility.  One day before school, her son asked if he could wear jeans to school just like his friends.  "Of course!", would be the answer, right?  Well, the braces present a unique challenge.  If he wears the jeans, then he won't be able to go to the restroom unassisted.  If he doesn't wear jeans, then he feels left out, like any kid would.  What is a mom to do?  Well, she created Runway of Dreams.

Runway of Dreams is a line of adaptive clothing to keep kids and adults that are differently-abled, fashionable.  Magnetic "buttons" hidden behind buttons allow people that would normally not be able to button a shirt unassisted, to button their own shirt. Openings in the back of a shirt or dress instead of having the garment be a pull-over.  It is little details such as these that change the fashion landscape and make it accessable to all.  What an amazing idea and what an amazing lady!

Please go to their website and watch the short documentary here and be inspired like I was.  

There are real heroes out there!
