Support autism, a condition with a spectrum of abilities.
#SupportSpectrum seeks to better the public’s understanding of autism by transforming knowledge into currency through a unique creative concept and donation mechanic. The initiative reimagines the colours of the autism spectrum and translates them into beautiful, limited-edition fashion pieces, specially tailored by a host of world-renowned designers. The exclusive collection is then auctioned off through the website, where donors have the option to bid using their knowledge of autism, which they will be provided with and quizzed on to validate their bids.
#SupportSpectrum has reimagined the autism colour spectrum, bringing it to life in a way that it resonates with style and fashion buffs in the region, while staying true to the seven original tones of the existing colour spectrum. Each colour on the spectrum represents an underlying feature of autism.
