Octavia Page studied at Richard J. Daley College. She is a Wife, Mother, Baker and Fashion Designer. Octavia has a differently able son and she knows first hand how hard it is to be fashionable and have a disability. Octavia began adapting all of her son clothes to make them accessible for him to wear. At which time she began to realize how many others are affected by the same thing. She made over 30 outfits made adaptive to the person and held a all inclusion fashion show showcasing everyone with their own abilities rocking the runway. Octavia wants to change the stigma where there always have to be separate events because a person is differently abled.
