ABOUT US

Founded in 2016 by Australia's 1st blind fashion designer, Blind Grit is Inspirational Street Fit Gear created by those who conquer challenges, for those who are ready for one! 

High quality, SUPER COMFORT, designed for getting out of your COMFORT ZONE !

 

Blind Grit celebrates the qualities required to live with disability & survive trauma, as some of the qualities we most admire, value & aspire to. It’s a celebration of those SUPER HUMANS who have been forced to survive outside a comfort zone that most of us take for granted. 

 

Blind Grit is built entirely of & around those who live with disability & survive trauma. All the aspirational, fun, dream jobs that sit behind the creation of a fashion label, will be done by those who live with disability & survive trauma; including the modelling, photography, PR, social media, graphic design, hair & make up artistry, styling, web design & management & of course the designing itself - everything but the manufacturing !

 

Every Blind Grit garment is infused with challenge-conquering energy, empowering you to get out of your comfort zone & tap into your own inner SUPER HUMAN: mentally, emotionally, physically.

 

What Do You Need To Conquer ? … Run further, be stronger, reach higher, stay focused, dig deeper, fear less, give more …

 

We are a comfort driven society. Why wouldn’t we be !? However, some of the qualities we most admire, value & aspire to, are only accessible outside our comfort zone: see it, value it, live it ! … for yourself & others.

VISION

To celebrate the qualities required to live with disability & survive trauma as some of the qualities we most admire, value & aspire to. 

 

To ‘Unleash The Power Of Survival‘ through aspiration, validation & motivation – creating employment opportunities that connect those who live with disability & survive trauma with their dreams & aspirations, whilst telling their story & expressing the meaning & strength in their personal experience.

 

To be innovative & entrepreneurial in the way we value those who live with disability & survive trauma & unleash their personal & social value – by maximizing approach motivation & minimizing avoidance motivation. Structure opportunities that acknowledge that the power of survival coexists with the scars of survival; & minimize the current socially embedded obstacles that many  people who live disability & survive trauma face in expressing their capabilities & potential in the world.

 

To harness the universal power of art & creative expression as a cathartic & empowering tool for those who live with disability &  survive trauma.

 

To build a tangible link transforming the SUPER HUMAN qualities of those who have no choice but to live outside their comfort zone, into inspiration & motivation for a SUPER HUMAN attitude in fitness & life ! Create high performance athleisure wear infused with challenge-conquering energy. 

 

We are a comfort driven society. Why wouldn’t we be !? However, some of the qualities we most admire, value & aspire to, are only accessible outside our comfort zone: see it, value it, live it ! … for yourself & others.
