Thank you to all who helped make this event a success!
The annual Developmental Pathways Fashion Show, in partnership with Park Meadows Mall and Macy’s, provided an opportunity for 25 models to walk the runway! First Responders from City of Lone Tree Police Department, Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, and South Metro Fire Rescue escorted the models.
“It was so wonderful to see all the smiles while I was working the check-in booth,” shared Kim, a DP employee. “Whether you are neurotypical or neurodiverse, whatever your abilities, I love that the fashion show seemed to make people feel special and beautiful. I think we often forget about the importance of self-esteem, and the models seemed to feel beautiful as they strutted their stuff down the runway.”
Another staff member in attendance shared about her experience: “I’ve attended the fashion show since I began working at DP—going on 4 years now—as both a volunteer and spectator. It’s my absolute favorite event that we hold because it embodies so well what we stand for: empowering people of all abilities to be their truest selves and be celebrated as such. I’m reminded why I choose to work here each time I attend and I am encouraged to create places of inclusivity wherever I’m at in the community.” – Natalie
