Changing Faces of Beauty

We have partnered with Kayu Design, a sustainable fashion accessories company to launch the Changing Faces of Beauty, our awareness initiative highlighting models with Down syndrome! Be sure to check out Kayu’s new collection of Batik hair accessories.  100% of the profits from the sale of these accessories benefit the Foundation and support our programs and services to promote the independence and inclusion of people with Down syndrome.

Anna B, teen self-advocate, yoga instructor and Learning Program alum is modeling Kayu’s accessories from their signature batik fabric.  The collection includes scrunchies, headbands and bandanas.  Check out the full line-up at Kayu. You can also purchase these accessories at any Learning Program session.

Anna leads a stretching & movement class for Boston-area Learning Program students,  highlighting the importance of fitness and staying healthy.

Kayu took a moment to learn more about the Foundation.  Check out their interview with our President, Julie Messina.
