Inclusive Fashion Project

When we talk about guaranteeing the rights of persons with disabilities , we should always think in broad terms. Meeting their needs is not restricted to building an access ramp for persons in wheelchairs, or to guarantee a prosthesis for those who need it. These important measures are should not take place in an isolated fashion.

Total inclusion depends from a set of actions that will allow persons with disabilities to really feel integrated in the society. This means that there should be ramps, prosthesis and orthesis being offered; but it also means to give people the means so they can make their options. For instance let them choose where and when to go somewhere and, obviously, choose like persons without disabilities do, the adequate clothing for each occasion.

One of the ways of supporting this process, allowing adequate clothing to be accessible was through the creation of contests. This process is better explained below and introduces the concept of imagination and creation. This is the reason why the State Secretariat for the Rights of the Person with Disability is organizing the Inclusive Fashion Contest that now has its International Edition.

The Inclusive Fashion Contest allows young stylists to direct a new look and solutions that will make easier the day-to-day life of persons with disabilities; will allows them to be on the catwalks and hit the streets with elegance and style, dressed for life.
Besides increasing the self-esteem of persons with disabilities, the autonomy these persons achieve when they find clothes that they are able to put on by themselves and solutions that will make their daily life easier by means of special modeling, is of utmost importance. As an example, it is an important achievement when a blind person finds a piece of clothing that as a label with braille information about details of the garment.

With the larger insertion of persons with disabilities in the labor market and society as a whole, the issue of clothing becomes very important, with potential of creation of a new value chain segment; the Project also has the aim to stimulate students and professionals to specialize in this area, besides leading the discussion if the realm of Social Responsibility, calling the attention to the theme in a playful manner, helping to promote a more inclusive society.

The Inclusive Fashion Contest carried out by the State Secretariat for the Rights of the Person with Disability was the first contest to be carried out in Brazil and according to researches this format is novel at international level as well.

The Inclusive Fashion Project stimulated the creativity of different groups such as students, teachers, persons with disabilities and fostered a market focused on ergonomics and spread the issue of disability to different groups of the society proposing a behavioral reflection, and fashion influenced by diversity and inspired in the viewpoint of Universal Design – Universal Design is an answer to the movement of a society that thrives for efficiency and functionality for all subjects along their cycles of life, a decisive factor when the goal is the construction of a society for everyone that prioritizes the removal of architectural, environmental and esthetic barriers.
