A major part of starting Watson & Wilma was more than just to bring you custom, ethically made goods. It was to spread awareness about vision loss. I imagine you are now thinking; “How do intimates and vision loss go together?” and let me tell you, that is not the first time I have received that question...
I was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) in 2008 and have since been learning about how to maintain stable vision through acupuncture and other nontraditional forms of medicine. During this process of learning how to be an advocate for my disability, I realized that there is not nearly enough awareness for the visually impaired community
This is my “why”
I want to share what has been working for me and helping me cope in my diagnosis of RP. The only way I knew how to do this was to combine my love of fashion, with my passion of informing others about vision loss. I plan to donate a portion of each sale to a local charity to help increase the use of alternative and holistic medicine for visual impairments.
