i-D speak to Aaron Phillip, a disabled, trans model who’s taking on the fashion industry.
Aaron suffers from cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair to get around. Despite all of the efforts made by the fashion industry in recent years to be as representative as possible, one area that they’re still behind on is representing people with disabilities. It’s still an absolute rarity to see someone in a wheelchair splashed over the covers of famous fashion magazines.
In this video, we learn about how Aaron first got into the world of modelling and how she wants to represent people with disabilities in the world of fashion. It’s an inspiring story that reminds us of how far we still have to go in regards to creating a truly inclusive world, but it also has us excited to see what the future might hold as well. People like Aaron are trailblazers in the fight to get disabled people better access into the fashion industry.
