Brazil loves wheelchair fashionFeb 19 07:05
Just like scientists realizing, "Wow, here's another animal species we didn't know about," don't think for a second you know everything that's happening in the world of adaptive fashion. There are fashion-forward things happening in countries all over the world, and I'm here to fill you in on.
Also, did you know a gorgeous model with a spinal cord injury hails from Brazil? Samanta Bullock is a paraplegic actress and model (also a member of Brazil's Paralympic wheelchair tennis team), who's been professionally modeling for several years (view her site). I've seen her face in Kuschall ads before (when she was a burnette). I love how fresh and real she is, and that she's also active helping children with disabilities in developing countries.
