The Runway of Dreams Foundation hosts a drive-in adaptive fashion show on March 9, 2021, at the Carpool Cinema Wynwood in Miami, beginning at 7:30 pm (EST).
The outdoor drive-in fashion show will feature adaptive apparel from presenting sponsor Kohl’s and other sponsors including Zappos Adaptive, Stride Rite and Tommy Hilfiger Adaptive. The show will premiere globally on March 11, 2021, via Runway of Dreams’ YouTube channel.
*NSYNC member Joey Fatone, currently host of Common Knowledge and Impractical Jokers, will host the event and introduce Runway of Dreams Founder and CEO Mindy Scheier. In addition, Fatone’s daughter, Kloey, will model in the runway show with over 40 Florida-based models, all of whom have a disability or difference. Featured throughout the show are models from Gamut Management, a talent management company exclusively for people with disabilities, according to a media release from Runway of Dreams Foundation.
“After approaching the fashion industry about designing mainstream adaptive clothing less than a decade ago, I’m so proud to see how far the movement and the industry have come in such a short time! We are excited that our Fashion Revolution will continue in Miami – under strict guidelines. This new, creative, and safe way shows our resilience as a population.”
— Mindy Schier
The event will also feature Runway by SAP, a machine learning-powered app used to identify an item of clothing. Users can “love” the item, add it to their wish list, buy it, and more.
