Horizons 'Fix Me' @ 9pm Tuesday 27th

Now i know that this isn't IMPERFECT related but i just wanted to say that on tuesday night there is a show called, 'Fix Me' which is about the various treatments going on around the world and if you are an amputee, have a spinal chord injury or have congenital heart problem then I think you may be really interested in the content.

I don't want to give to much away but the show follows three different journeys to different countries to see what the world is offering in ways of treatment either now or in the future.

While the show does seem to show that my particular journey in life seems to be to find a cure, this isn't exactly the case, i live a very happy and fulfilled life, and my real incentive with the adventure i partook in was actually to find out what was going on out there! For someone like me, who had an accident and wasn't born disabled, i think i'll often compare my two realities and wander if i will ever return to the way i was born..I also wanted to know if going overseas to find treatment was an option and i learnt all bout this and as a result i was able to make a far more informed decision, and i hope, that if you are wandering about this yourself or know someone who is, that the show helps you make your own mind up. I also hope that it gives anyone that is waiting and wanting a bit of hope! You'll see what i mean!!

I will be online after the show on the BBC Ouch! forums which is a great chance to answer any questions and I hope if you have time to see it, you enjoy it!!

As for IMPERFECT news things are zooming along, sorry that things have been quite but we busy getting things sorted! I'll be back this week with some more updates,
Love Soph x

As i said in the previous post last week we had a brilliant photo shoot. Britain's Missing Top Model Kelly Knox modeled (pictured above center) the beautiful IMPERFECT t-shirt dresses collection that was designed by Joe McCombe (above left) and Ross Fortsythe (above right). The boys were phenomenal, not only creating the clothes but styling the shoot too!
We had Sam Fisher as photographer and as i've said in the previous post, i cant thank him enough!

It was a brilliant collaboration of different talents and in the end we got some amazing images. The theme of the shoot was to have fun with the clothes, nothing too serious or conceited like most photo shoots can be, but instead I wanted the images to reflect just what IMPERFECT believes in, that no one is perfect or imperfect! We are all inclusive! I decided to bring in a professional model without a disability also, as this campaign doesn't want to segregate disabled people. Instead we want to call an end to inequality, to unite in support of each other.
Heather (below second from left) was fabulous and her and Kelly really showed off the garments perfectly!!or imperfectly!!
The final images are up on the website
as well as some new inspiring stories
