October is Dwarfism Awareness Month
October marks Dwarfism awareness month with events and celebrations planned across the world, our own Mega weekend is normally held at the end of October for this reason. We are encouraging members of the community to raise awareness and share facts to shake off any misconceptions about the 200+ conditions that cause Dwarfism.
Welcome to the RGA
We’re passionate about changing society for the better so that people with dwarfism can have the same opportunities as everyone else. Our purpose is to ensure that all people who are affected by dwarfism are equal in society.

Feature of the Month
Fashion and Dwarfism with Chamiah Dewey
Chamiah Dewey Fashion is the UK’s first clothing brand for people with Dwarfism/short stature. We offer stylish, timeless pieces, made in eco-conscious fabrics, sourced and produced in the UK, and finished with innovative, adaptive fastenings.
Chamiah Dewey Fashion addresses the critical issue of the lack of positive representation of little people, especially in the fashion industry. We directly challenge societal perceptions of little people that have been conditioned into society for hundreds of years.
Our mission is to disrupt the fashion industry, producing and spreading positive representations of little people to the mainstream media, changing societal perceptions, and showing the fashion industry that little people are just as beautiful and deserving of stylish clothing and a place in the industry.
Our vision for Chamiah Dewey Fashion is to lead and dominate the fashion industry for little people, successfully venturing into womenswear, menswear, children’s-wear, and occasion-wear; partnering with the likes of the Paralympics to produce bespoke kits for Paralympians, creating bespoke red-carpet looks for short stature celebrities, and collaborating with household names to bring short stature clothing to the high street. We’d love to host pop-up stores across the globe, reaching all corners of the world to spread awareness of short-stature fashion and to bring together the community in an immersive, welcoming, and accessible in-person shopping experience.
In September 2022 we made our occasion and bridal range debut at London Fashion Week with London Represents. More information about bespoke commissions and occasion wear can be found on our website! Please visit Chamiah Dewey website for more details.
