Wales native and former Parsons student Lucy Jones is launching her own brand FFORA, and I can't wait. Lucy was inspired to design accessible clothing by her cousin who lives with disabilities. After winning the Parsons The Parsons x Kering Empowering Imagination Design competition, Lucy's career has been on an upward trajectory. She went on to win the Parsons Designer of the Year award, the Eileen Fisher Social Innovator Award, a partnership between Eileen Fisher Inc. and the CFDA and so much more.
Although I haven't met Lucy I celebrate her victories as if they were my own, because as she wins we all win. Her work and commitment to excellence has taken the conversation of dressing fashion customers with disabilities to the ears of change makers within the industry.
