Here’s a good use for the word gobsmacked: http://is.gd/nF6p0l

Issey Miyake’s genius continues to extend the distance between him and all other clothing designers.

Is anyone else in the industry doing this:

…or telling a STORY like this:

“The process by which the clothing is made is groundbreaking, using a mathematical algorithm: first, a variety of three-dimensional shapes are conceived in collaboration with a computer scientist; then, these shapes are folded into two-dimensional forms with pre-set cutting lines that determine their finished shape; and finally, they are heat-pressed, to yield folded shirts, skirts, dresses etc. These clothes are significant not only for the process by which they were made but because they are also made using recycled PET products, sometimes in combination with other recycled fibers.”

Nope.

Here’s a little release on a real game-changer client. Her story is fascinating!

Mobility Chic!, a fashionable innovator in accessory and mobility products for elderly, disabled, wounded veterans and recovering surgery patients, launched today at Medtrade tradeshow in Atlanta, Georgia. The Mobility Chic! product line includes gorgeous and easy to use Wheelchair Wraps, Lumbar Pillows, Dignity Bags, Caregiver Totes, Shrug blankets, multi-function Purses on the Go, SoftBelt seatbelt cushions, and Lanyards to keep keys and small items handy. While fashion-forward and fun, the colors and design of each product has been specifically created to brighten every owner’s mood and promote well-being.

Limited mobility should never dictate a change in personal style,” says Ginger Smith, founder of Mobility Chic! “I created this line of chic products for all people with mobility challenges –from wounded veterans, older adults, disabled children, to patients recovering from breast cancer surgery –that are stylish and reflects the quality of life they deserve.”

Ginger’s experience has prepared her for the role of innovator. “I have spent hundreds of hours with patients, families, and caregivers. I realized there was a huge gap in the market for what mobility challenged people need day-to-day, to make life easier, without sacrificing style. I created Mobility Chic! to provide them with beautiful accessories that fulfill specific functions.
