Gemdale USA Team Participates in the Design for Disability Fashion Charity
New York City
May 9, 2018
The Gemdale USA team partnered with Madison Equities and Pizzarotti was pleased to sponsor the Cerebral Palsy Foundation’s third annual Design for Disability Fashion Show and Gala on May 9th at Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City. The event showcased breakthrough innovations in fashion for people with disabilities, featuring student-designed looks that are both fashion-forward and accessible.
The evening started with a Virtual Reality experience that gave guests a firsthand look at the challenges of a life lived as a non-verbal individual in a wheelchair. It aims to overcome common misperceptions associated with their experiences.
Gemdale USA, Madison Equities and Pizzarotti planned two new subway elevators to the Broad Street J/Z station, that will be publicly accessible, and are in large part the developer’s response to the lack of ADA accessibility on the city’s subway system.
