First up is Victoria Jenkins. Victoria used to work for Victoria Beckham, but she’s since launched an adaptive fashion brand called Unhidden.
She’s been working in fashion for 14 years, so brings bags of experience to the show.
Victoria became Disabled in her 20s. When she first became Disabled, she realised that none of her old clothes met her new needs.
A chance encounter with a woman who had cancer led her to launch Unhidden. During a hospital stay, she noticed that a fellow patient had to undress every time the doctors came round her clothes didn’t accommodate her stoma, medical lines or chest port.
The woman had no choice but to wear loungewear, as nothing else was practical. Victoria discovered that very few companies made adaptive clothing, which inspired her to launch Unhidden.
Triple Minor (aka Georgie) is a trans nonbinary model and stylist. They want to be part of the representation they always wanted to see in the fashion industry.
According to their website, Triple Minor is on a mission to de-gender fashion and beauty.
They use social media to promote their unique fashion – check out their work on Instagram @tripleminor.
