Encouraging body confidence for young disabled adults with Embargo 59 & Flamingo Foundation
At Find My Style we are super excited to announce our new collaboration with Embargo 59 and the Flamingo Foundation where we will be making a difference for young disabled adults over London Fashion Week in February 2014.
In a couple of weeks, Embargo 59 will be launching their special cocktail collection to raise funds and bring the catwalk to life for young disabled adults. The cocktail collection will be available for seven days only and each drink sold will raise £1 for the styling project run by charity Flamingo Foundation to fund personal styling sessions for young disabled adults.
The personal styling sessions will be led by Find My Style’s Hannah Jean, who will be working with participants to explore fashion, style and body confidence and adapting items of clothing. Hannah says, “Image and confidence in what we wear can make a huge difference, but young disabled people can feel removed from the fashion scene and find it difficult to find on-trend clothes that suit their style and their body. This project is a fantastic way to open up the world of fashion and demonstrate that everyone can find or adapt clothes to show off their individuality and tastes.”
Our favourite cocktail on the menu is ‘Shake Your Tail Feather’ – if you want to make it yourself, this is what you need:
12.5ml Briot Peche de Vigne
37.5ml Bacardi Superior
20ml Lime juice
10ml Monin Gomme – To taste
15ml Mercier Champagne
To get the perfect cocktail you simply:
• Cut a slice off the peach for the garnish.
• Put the rest of the peach and all other ingredients except the champagne into a blender with crushed ice and blend.
• Pour the drink into a glass, top with champagne and cap with crushed ice and garnish.
A word from Embargo 59
“Bringing together fashion and cocktails to support this wonderful project is a real privilege for us,” says Simon Downwood, General Manager at Embargo 59. “The new drinks taste and look amazing and we’re excited that young disabled people will be able to explore and enjoy fashion trends with the help of Hannah and Find My Style.”
