Rut's energy, passion and care for what she believes in takes you over from the first moment you meet her. Her work is also her mission: she is extremely knowledgeable and fearless in advocating for the inclusion of people with disabilities and making the world just and accessible for all. Rut is a true activist and a strong ally for the community, if you challenge her, she'll challenge you back.
Working with Rut has been a journey in my understanding of inclusive and accessible design in the textile and fashion sector. Her consultative approach has given me a unique perspective on how to integrate inclusivity into every aspect of design. Rut not only shares knowledge, but shows the importance of considering accessibility in the design process.
I had the chance to participate in a European program for which Rut brought her expertise. It was such a great experience and pleasure to work with her. In addition to her highly specialised expertise and experience in her fields, Rut is a radiant person, overflowing with positive energy. I would totally recommend working with Rut and Movingmood.
Rut's visionary ability and strategy to bridge the gap between fashion and the disability community make Moving Mood one of the most socially impactful, disruptive and revolutionary projects in the retail industry.
We got to know Rut and MovingMood through a sustainable fashion company. It helped us to improve our best sellers, the dresses, to make them more inclusive, with almost no cost .
Movingmood helped me expand my knowledge about materials and the placement of certain adaptive elements. With their expertise and guidance, I’ve been able to design an inclusive collection that addresses the needs of individuals, with the hope that more fashion brands will do the same.
All Abilities Master course has shaken the concept of clothing and fashion that I had until now, it has given me the restlessness to give a new approach to my future creations. I recommend it 100%.
The Escuela de la Dona has acquired two Moving3Dmachine levers designed by the social enterprise Movingmood. With this initiative, the school has taken a further step in the process of adapting its classrooms.
Working with Rut was an absolute pleasure. I highly recommend this training if you want to gain a different perspective from individuals with real-life experiences in accessibility.
A conversation with Rut made me aware that the path was integrating certain aspects into the overall production, rather than recommending the creation of an exclusive collection that would separate them from the rest of society. Taking Rut’s proposed course has helped me discover new ideas, organize my thoughts, and put them into practice.
Rut puts forward a vision of fashion that goes beyond trends to put people at the centre of design, pointing out the enrichment of the diversity of bodies and skills present in our real environment.
Rut gave a training session at UIC on diversity and inclusion in the fashion industry. We were impressed with the knowledge and experience she brought to the students, and her great professionalism and human quality. A safe bet for all those who want to deepen or apply this knowledge to their brand or company.
I had the opportunity to meet Rut thanks to a project aimed at promoting better incubation for people with disabilities. In addition to her expertise when it comes to accessibility, what impressed me was her energy, passion for her work, and ability to motivate everyone around her. Rut is really a Radiant, Unique, and Truly inspiring person I can't wait to work with again.
I met Rut in the Social Challenges Innovation Platform, where I discovered how her sewing machines were adapted to the needs of the youngsters with disabilities. She told more than a project, she told her passion, her knowledge and her commitment to make the world a better place. Since then, I always learn from Rut about inclusivity and accessibility in the fashion industry.
I am really grateful and proud to have an inspiring teacher like Rut, not only helping us in our studies, but in our overall life. I will always remember your advice.
