Type 1 Awareness
Yesterday the Charity Group I am involved in – Type 1 Voice, teamed up with Deviation Road Winery and Australian Fashion Labels to help raise awareness on Type 1 Diabetes and also launch a new collaboration between Type 1 Voice and Australian Fashion Labels.
The new collaboration consists of a custom range of dresses where an internal pocket is created to hold the insulin pump discretely within the dress.
Type 1 Diabetes is a subject that’s very close to home. I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes almost 7 years ago, it’s been a roller-coaster ride, with many ups and downs, I’ve learnt a lot about myself and would not be the person I am today if I didn’t have this disease. One thing it has done, is open my eyes about helping those around me, I know firsthand how difficult it can be, and if there’s one thing I can do is offer support.
I’m very lucky to have the support I have, It has definitely made the journey a lot easier and that’s what the initiative of Type 1 Voice, to help support people like me in their everyday life, from work to School and University and even to ensure they are getting the right type of support from their medical team.
Thanks to Australian Fashion Labels for their support in this cause and for allowing me to showcase this beautifully structured gingham dress designed by Finders Keepers from their new range. I teamed it with my Steve Madden wedge navy heels and my new sunnies from Naked Boutique in Rundle Street.
Overall it was an amazing turnout in the picturesque winery Deviation Road and a lot of awareness was raised for a meaningful cause, one that benefits many including myself
