When my grandmother passed away a year and a half ago, I wrote a long tribute to her on my blog about how she inspired me both in life and in business What I didn’t mention is that during the last few years of her life, she had Parkinson’s disease, which made it difficult for her to lift her arms, hold things, perform basic tasks like getting herself dressed.
Since then, I’ve had the idea for creating simple, fashionable clothing for the elderly that enabled them to easily dress themselves and still look great. I would love to prototype some of my ideas and get them produced. Just because someone is old doesn’t mean they need to lose their fashion sense!
I know my Granna would approve of this goal and I think in some ways it’s her spirit that keeps drawing me back to this project.
