Join us for a virtual panel discussion with three disability advocates about adaptive fashion, what they look for in designs, their hopes for the future of the fashion industry, and more. Our speakers represent a range of experiences and roles around adaptive fashion. Keah Brown is an author, actress, journalist and screenwriter, as well as the creator of the viral hashtag #DisabledAndCute. Xian Horn is an advocate, speaker, writer, and teacher and she founded the non-profit Give Beauty Wings as well as walking the runway at New York Fashion week for Zappos Adaptive. Maureen Young is an actor, opera singer, voice-over artist, playwright and journalist.

Moderated by Professor Carli Spina, Head of Research and Instructional Services, FIT Library.
