Q & A with Creative Director Jessica Vereecken:

JS: What lead you to create Tiny Imperfections?

JV: I have a son Cas, who has had a severe hearing loss since he was 2.5yr (very sudden deafness), and has an implant and a hearing aid. Cas is photogenic and models from time to time, however, I feel that the brands are afraid to show a child with a tiny imperfection in their campaign.

JS: Where did you get the inspiration for the story from?

JV: I wanted to create awareness about tiny imperfections in the kid’s fashion world. In adult fashion, you already see a lot of imperfections, like prostheses, wheelchairs, etc.  In the kid’s fashion, almost none, yet this is now changing and I would like to be part of that change and help raise the awareness of children with disabilities in advertising. We wanted to feature children with a range of physical imperfections and were lucky to find five children with disabilities ranging from achondroplasia, leg prostheses, cerebral palsy, chromosomal dysfunction to hearing loss.

JS:  How did you select the clothing for the shoot?

JV:  Coralie selected the clothing and styled the shoot.  We wanted to as much as possible to only use Belgian kids fashion brands such as Caroline Bosmans, Bo(y)smans, Aymara, Max&Lola and added Molo, Tarantella, Collegien.

JS: How successful has the project been to date?

JV: We are very happy so far with the response. The edit appeared in Knack Weekend Magazine 28/08 (a Belgian magazine) with five pictures and an interview. We want to reach a large audience with this project as we have still a long battle to fight!
