Our mission is to “create a more authentic and diverse Boston,” says Malia Lazu,
the executive director of Epicenter Community based in Dorchester, MA.
Their focus is neither on disability nor on fashion, but rather on “spawn[ing] inclusive
collaborations that deliver positive impact.”
It is this desire to include diverse & authentic voices in collaborations that
ultimately led to the decision to organize a never-before-done-in-Boston
fully inclusive fashion show for people with disabilities.
"I believe Future Boston’s celebration of the design community will continue to grow.
There is so much design work in this city.
It doesn’t make sense that we’re not filled with boutiques
& that we’re filled with chain stores instead."
