The Power Of Fashion

Fashion is such an interesting career choice for someone with a visible disability. On the surface, it seems to have nothing at all to do with disability. But, in a way, it has everything to do with it. Maybe it’s the idea that fashion … which can easily be perceived as trivial … can truly give a person the power to project whatever image they choose, at will. And it doesn’t have to do this by masking. At its best, fashion enhances what the person already has.

There are at least three or four things that Jillian says in this video, very briefly, that are very meaningful and thought-provoking. So, I might return to the video to comment on them as this week goes by.
