All are welcome is the main message behind the Lucky in Love Tennis and Fashion Community Fun Day, a collaborative effort between USTA Florida and the USTA that will be held Sunday, Nov. 17, 2019.

The tennis fun will take place from 4:30 p.m. – 7 p.m. at the USTA National Campus in Orlando. The community event will feature family tennis play, wheelchair tennis demonstrations, and an adaptive fashion exhibit. The exhibit will include menswear, womenswear, and specially designed garments for the Lucky in Love sponsored wheelchair tennis players.

The event is presented by tennis apparel company Lucky in Love and aims to bring awareness to adaptive fashion pioneered by Maria Torrealba and students from the Miami International University of Art & Design. Torrealba was a fashion student in her native country of Venezuela when she was the victim of an accident that left her in need of a wheelchair. She then moved to Miami where she graduated from the Miami International University of Art & Design. She developed a mission to have her fellow students create adaptive clothing to bring fashion, empowerment, & confidence to the wheelchair community.

Inclusivity That Goes Beyond the Clothing!❤️Lucky in Love partners with the Miami University of Art and Design @miamiintluniversity , to develop an experimental collection of adaptive sports apparel.With the support of Lucky in Love, the fashion students will develop an adaptive sportswear line making the wheelchair community feeling empowered, fashionable, and confident. Select designs will be displayed in a museum-style exhibit at the USTA National Campus @usta in Orlando on November 17th, 2019. Stay tuned for the updates and progress of the project! ✨ #allarewelcome #seemeroll

Inclusivity that goes beyond clothing.Maria Torrealba @majo_torrealba was a fashion student in her native country of Venezuela when she was the victim of an accident that left her in need of a wheelchair. She then moved to Miami where she graduated from the Miami International University of Art & Design. @miamiintluniversity Being passionate about fashion, one of her main struggles was finding her style again. She refused to dress in clothes that look like hospital gowns. Just because someone’s body is different does not mean they can not look fashionable.Maria developed a mission to have her fellow students create adaptive clothing to bring fashion, empowerment, & confidence to the wheelchair community. Lucky In Love has teamed up with the Miami International University of Art and Design to bring this mission to life.
