Grace Rose was a dreamer and a survivor from day one. Born with Cystic Fibrosis, GR made her daily challenges the vehicle to empower a movement around advocacy for CF.  And this all began at the young age of 2! Since her first walk at a fashion fundraiser, Grace Rose has propelled her efforts and creativity into designing her own line of clothing.  Rosie G is a line dedicated to spreading awareness and inspiring funding to find a cure for CF. Today, Grace Rose talks to TPFG about life with Cystic Fibrosis, and how her “trials” have become her greatest source of joy, inspiration and community.

Chandler Moseley

Fashion DesignerTiburon, CAStory & Photos by Lauri LevenfeldFashion by Chandler Moseley

Chandler Moseley is a fun-loving, creative soul who is deeply passionate about art and fashion design. Her collections portray a witness to the world with humor, color, and imagination. And while a painting might spark her direction for a latest collection, Chandler hopes her designs inspire women to feel good about themselves and inspire activism and a voice for those who need the support. For Moseley, it is her passion for fashion that has provided a way to channel her life’s dreams and challenges. Never could she have imagined that her activism and pledge to stop bullying (inspired by a dear friend & a tee) would a year later become her own personal story, an outcry to her own victimization. But Chandler isn’t lying down and taking this lightly, she is starting a movement and the movement is fashion.  Stay tuned…

But Dia’s adds a modern day twist, going deeper with her designs and  her desires to create a company that not only gives back, but will build infrastructure, encourage entrepreneurship and navigate the development of artisanal skills in communities across the developing world. With just over a week to go before her first runway show and the soft launch of her fashion line benefiting over 27 charities, Dia tells her story of sleepless nights and dyed peacock feathers.
