Description

Meet Nikki Hind, the blind fashion designer with her own fashion label. Nikki had always dreamed of becoming a fashion designer. When she was growing up, Nikki couldn't see out of her left eye and later in life a stroke took away almost all of her vision. Nikki didn’t let that stop her. Now, she is the proud owner of Blind Grit, her own fashion label that employs people with disabilities and challenges.

Just one in a series of three biographies written by Vision Australia, all with successful Australian’s living with blindness or low vision at their heart. Giving Australia three new role models who are determined, resilient, successful and blind. True stories to empower new perspectives of what is possible to build true inclusivity through belief.

"This series of wonderful books is a great way for us to spread that message and help future generations throw off the misconceptions and expectations placed on them by society."
- Vision Australia CEO, Ron Hooton.
