For high profile models Alana Zimmer and Grace Mahary, fashion is obviously a huge part of their lives, though both women have family members who face the unique challenges to fashion and dressing presented to all wheelchair users. This experience
  motivated the models to participate in our Fashion IZ Freedom campaign.

As part of the promotion for IZ's upcoming Fall / Winter range for 2016, Grace and Alana took their dedication one step further and participated in a shoot in which they work with lead IZ model Anita Kaiser to show off the new collection.
Shot by Chris Chapman and styled by Peter Pappapetrou, senior artist from MAC Cosmetics Melissa Gibson was the MUA and hair was styled by Marilisa Sears of Marc Anthony.

The fashion industry sets standards for every body and to see yourself represented in fashion can be rare, however, for wheelchair users in particular it is almost impossible. At IZ, we've made it our mission to break down barriers and push for diversity. Merging the mainstream fashion world with our IZ garments by putting clothing designed for sitting on a standing frame, is an unusual concept that highlights the unique differences that IZ offers.
