Meet Nikki Hind, the blind fashion designer with her own fashion label. When she was growing up, Nikki couldn't see out of her left eye. That didn't stop her from dressing-up and making her own clothes though.

When she put on different outfits, she could be anyone. After a stroke during her pregnancy took away Nikki's vision in her right eye, she decided to pursue a career doing what she had always loved: designing. Nikki started her own fashion label, Blind Grit and now, Nikki's label is shown at Melbourne Fashion Week and employs people with disabilities and challenges.
