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.

I chose RGA UK “because you sent out lots of lovely stuff for me to use for raising awareness for my son Lauchlan’s 1st birthday party – which was a lot and a great help. Lauchlan is the only person where we live with the condition so all your info etc was brilliant and helped out billions.” Louise
As a child with dwarfism, the RGA UK annual convention was one of the highlights of my year – spending the weekend with people I didn’t have to explain myself to… I remember the excitement of arriving and the sadness of leaving. As an adult and trustee, it has been a privilege to help organise these events for the next generation.Eugene Grant
“Having got involved with the RGA over the years and having been made to feel so welcome, all our family felt it was the obvious choice to support. My boys have really enjoyed meeting people through the RGA… so it was great to be able to give something back.” – Anna, RGA UK supporter
