PODCAST: Grow Bold with Disability

Jessie Sadler founded the Christina Stephens adaptive clothing label after her mum had a fall some years back and damaged her elbows. After researching the fashion available in the market for style conscious women with short or long-term physical challenges, she realised there was a social and business opportunity in front of her. Jessie wants to give women living with disabilities a choice. She wants to bring inclusive and adaptive clothing to the mainstream. You can listen to her story as she talks to Pete and Tristram about her fashion label and her plans for the future in the adaptive clothing industry.
