At age ten, when Stephanie Alves started sewing she had no concept that one day she would revolutionize the clothing industry by designing clothes for people with special needs. ABL Denim, Stephanie’s company ( www.abldenim.com ), is producing jeans – yes jeans for various needs in different fabrics and styles to accommodate various needs and desires and is making consumers with disabilities elated because wearing jeans is an inalienable right. You’re probably wearing them now and jeans are the only reason I ventured into broadcasting since my chosen field could care less what one sports in an on-air environment. I even have my jeans categorized - my “nice jeans” are reserved for my talks at schools (k-12 and college) though I have to abandon them for corporate talks. So, on behalf of a society that loves all things comfy, thank you Stephanie Alves for creating jeans for consumers with disabilities who like everyone – deserves the right to be comfortable and look cool!
