After Dr. Danielle Sheypuck appeared on the runway, Carrie received over 300 letters from women, thanking her for representing them on the runway. Among many letters received was one, written Karen Crespo who lost her limbs due to complications of meningitis. In November her new bionic arm prosthetics were stolen from her front porch. Carrie was instrumental in getting new prosthetics made for Karen in time to walk the runway.
The CARRIE HAMMER label is sponsored by "Fashion Law Institute" at Fordham Law School. At September’s show twenty-three looks designed in New York City will feature custom, classic, clothing to women for career life. The selected models will be REAL WORLD ROLE MODELS -- CEO's, philanthropists, reporters and now Karen Crespo an inspiration to many. The goal of CARRIE HAMMER is to revolutionize the way modern women dress.
