è Ispirante

$400 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 7 people in 7 months
The idea for è Ispirante began when I was hired to make a corset for a woman who had polio as a child and must wear a corset every day. When I saw the corset she wanted me to copy, my first reaction was how unattractive it was. I thought that if this is something that she has to wear every day, why not make it look nice as well as be functional. After perfecting the fit, I then added lace, that was securely stitched down to avoid catching on anything, and trimmed the edges and covered the boning tape with a floral print. The Client was very happy with it and we proceeded to make a second one in various batik fabrics. You can see these corsets on my website at www.barbarabecciodesideratum.com.  Click on "About" and choose "Corsets" in the drop-down.

I then looked at adaptive clothing available and wanted to give people more exciting and fashionable options.

At the same time, I began making skirts for my friend's daughter who has CP. Both her and her daughter loved the skirts as they were easy to take on an off using my design features, and were made with fun fabrics as well as sparkly! I then decided to start creating fun and attractive Adaptive clothing for girls.  è Ispirante was born! I want to expand the clothing line to other clothing items as well as design Adaptive clothing for women. In the future, my designs will include boys and men. 

My friend's daughter is Sara Ann, who is an amazing painter! I have chosen some of her paintings and had them printed on T-shirts to sell along with the skirts. Sara Ann will receive a percentage of the profits from the sale of the T-shirts.

The funds that I am raising, will help me to purchase the fabric and notions, and pay the manufacturer to produce the garments. I am working on women's skirts to get ready for production. 

Having the funds to proceed with this project will allow me to offer interesting and functional Adaptive clothing. After speaking with many people - parents of special needs children as well as special needs adults, I have so many more ideas for Adaptive clothing that people are interested to see go forward. It will mean so much to me, as well as a large demographic that is underserviced in the clothing industry, to be able to design and offer this clothing to the differently abled community.

The photo is what my first booth looked like for my first Abilities Expo in LA, 2018. Please visit my website at the link above to see all the Skirts and T-Shirts available at this time. I am also planning to have more girls Skirts for cooler weather. More T-shirt designs are also in the works!

Was in financial application hell all day today until I left for Pilates class at 6pm. I have done a creative juggling plan, but was unable to get a loan for the Adaptive Line yet. As I have been cleaning out, I was going through my old design portfolios and came across photos of friends. Yup, that’s me at 24 in the wedding dress I made. The rest are friends.
