UK/ID festival have collaborated with designers Sean Sheila and Teatum Jones to put on show at Jakarta Fashion week with a difference.
'I’m here with British Council to collaborate with Indonesian designers, we’re doing inclusive open casting that gives people with disabilities the opportunity to take part in Jakarta Fashion Week.'
Rob Jones, Teatum Jones
We want to combat fast fashion, it’s really bad for the environment and the industry itself. The fashion industry cannot go on like this.
The show will include non-disabled models too, it’s about being inclusive and making sure disabled people have access to the same opportunities as other models. This collaboaration marks a very important time in the fashion industry, modelling should be representative of the diverse world that we live in.
