Philly Fashion Designers Reveal Empowering Message Behind Brand

PHILADELPHIA, PA- Jimmy Curran, 26, co-owner and founder of [Dis] able the Brand sat with his partner Eddie Doyle on Good Day to discuss the message behind their brand.

"[Dis] able the brand is founded on the idea that we all have limitations, whether we are in a chair or not and we all have the ability to overcomes those limitations," said Curran.

He was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy, a genetic disorder that affects control of muscle movement.

"So while, I'll never run the steps like Rocky or the millions of people who come to the Art Museum steps to copy him, that's not the only way to the top," says Curran.

Jimmy and Eddie Doyle, who met 8 years ago at Temple University, started their company about a year and a half ago.

Curran created a logo and sent it to a T-shirt company and then posted the shirt on Facebook and Instagram, which received good responses.

He then decided to order more shirts and expand the company by having other apparel such as tank tops, hoodies, hats, and long sleeve t-shirts.

Rapper Nelly, NFL Player LeSean McCoy, and Mob Wives Star Renee Graziano have all purchased shirts from the company.

84 people have donated to the brand so far and they have raised a more than $3,000.With every pledge of $5 or more, a wristband, sticker, and a shout out on social media will be included along with your donation.

The co-owners have started their campaign in an effort to raise $45,000, in order to expand their company. They would like to make children's clothing, books, and use the site to create short films and documentaries that will feature people with disabilities.
