Here’s a company you should know about: Matilda Jane Clothing. I ran across a piece about them in The Mighty and had to share. The company has been around since 2014, and uses models both with and without disabilities to sell their clothing lines for young girls. Here’s what the marketing executive had to say:
“We have worked with a variety of beautiful models, and we include at least one model with a disability in each of our monthly photo shoots,” Kate Virag, senior marketing manager, said. “Working with models with disabilities has been a wonderful experience for our team and for the other models at each photo shoot. The support, love and positivity around this campaign is amazing,” Virag said. “We truly want all girls to feel beautiful and confident. That is the concept Matilda Jane was founded on, and it covers all girls of all abilities.”
Beautiful, all the way around.
