Fashion Designer for Wheelchair UsersFor Izzy Camilleri, the journey to becoming a top fashion designer for people with disabilities began after befriending Barbara Turnbull, also of Toronto, Canada, who was a wheelchair-using quadriplegic.

“When I met Barb ten years ago, she had been injured twenty years,” said 49-year-old Camilleri in a telephone interview. “By then, I had made a strong name for myself in the Canadian fashion industry. Barb asked the fashion editor of a newspaper who the editor would recommend to make a cape for her. Today, Barb is a reporter with the Toronto Star.”
