Adaptive fashion show celebrates kids, adults with disabilities

The 2nd annual Strut and Stroll virtual fashion show put on by the Massachusetts Spina Bifida Association is a virtual fashion show celebrating kids and adults with disabilities.

The models are living with spina bifida, showing off adaptive fashion.

Spina bifida is a condition that affects the spine and is usually apparent at birth.

A number of brands were featured including "Be Free," which is based in Swampscott.

Joanne DiCamillo and Nikki Puzzo co-founded "Be Free" after Nikki realized she needed a solution for her daughter who has cerebral palsy and needed double hip surgery.

She created the zipOn pant, which completely opens at the outer seam but also protects the skin from the zipper on the inside.

Be Free's founders say they believe everyone should have comfortable clothing options that help them look and feel good.
