Stephanie Thomas is a disability and fashion styling expert, and Founder and CEO of Cur8able, a B2B business dedicated to dressing with disabilities. Stephanie was also the keynote speaker at the Women in Agile session at Agile2019 in Washington D.C.
For more than two decades Thomas has researched clothing and retail trends exclusively for people with disabilities, and as a congenital amputee herself missing digits on her right hand and feet, this is more than her profession, it’s her lived experience.
Thomas says people with disabilities are not seen as fashion customers, despite the $6 trillion combined buying power of these individuals, their family and friends: “We personify pets more than we do fashion disability customers. We design for pets, we have jackets for pets…” With her Disability Fashion Styling System©, she provides safe and stylish options so that people with diverse needs can dress to feel great and be seen.
