Fashion and Art Show: Another Face of Beauty

On Saturday, October 8, 2022, John’s Crazy Socks will stage a fashion and art show where all the models and artists have a differing ability.

At John’s Crazy Socks, we want to show the world what people with differing abilities can do. To further that mission, we are staging a Fashion and Art Show: Another Face of Beauty. All of the models in the fashion show will have a disability and there will be musical performances by people with differing abilities. There will also be an art show and the artwork will be created by people with differing abilities. 

John Cronin, the co-founder of John’s Crazy Socks, said, “We want to show that beauty comes in many forms.”

Cronin, started the company as a social enterprise with a mission of Spreading Happiness™. With more than 4,000 socks, John’s Crazy Socks is now the world’s largest sock store. More than half their employees have a differing ability, and their Giving Back program has raised over $550,000 for charity partners like the Special Olympics, the National Down Syndrome Society, and the Autism Society of America.
