The GCR Adaptive Project values education, accessibility, and inclusivity with the primary goal of inspiring the creation and design of adaptive clothing for all bodies regardless of ability.
All donations we gracious receive are used to help fashion design students pay for fabric so they can produce adaptive clothing themselves for people with disabilities. In case you didn’t know, schools don’t pay for student fabric.
That’s exactly why where we come in.
Students are the future which is why we’re committed to educating them on the importance of designing clothing for everyone regardless of ability.
I'm Keisha Greaves, fashion designer at Girls Chronically Rock and the founder of the GCR Adaptive Project. A Framingham State alum myself, I connected with faculty about bringing adaptive fashion curriculum to university fashion students.
In the course of my partnership with Framingham State, I realized more and more the potentially monumental impact I could make on the world's next major fashion designers and future brands.
Change truly starts with our students.
My adaptive fashion partnership with FSU grew even more fruitful when one of the students designed an adaptive swimwear line: Adaptive Splash by Girls Chronically Rock. Swimsuits aren't easy to wear for the able-bodied, never mind disabled people.
I'm so proud of Girls Chronically Rock Adaptive Splash. Explore the designs and shop below.
I look forward to partnering with other school and university fashion programs to teach the designers of tomorrow how to design for all bodies regardless of ability.
