Episode 8 - Amy Dallas

"I couldn't get comfortable and was like, something's not right." Amy Dallas, founder and CEO of Brisbane fashion label Chronic Youth, has been living with chronic pain for seven years. She talks about the difficulty in getting a diagnosis, how living with her condition has made her question our culture of always being busy, and the creativity with which she has overcome challenges. For instance, she wanted to be a fashion designer, but once she got to Tafe, her pain prevented her from being able to stoop over sewing assignments. So, Amy has found an innovative way of getting her fashion designs out there. Now she's found work that she is passionate about and happy to spend her spoons on. We also talk fashion, living out of home, and why jeggings are a feminist issue (I insist that they are).
