Autism-inspired clothing range launched by Pinchbeck campaigner





A new autism-inspired clothing range has been launched.

The Aut Couture brand has been founded by Pinchbeck’s Callum Brazzo, a former columnist in this paper, to represent the pride and passion of people with the spectrum disorder.

Eyecatching designs and slogans such as ‘find your flow’, ‘pride is a process’ and ‘self diagnosed badass’ are available as tees, sweaters, vests and hoodies for both adults and kids.

"I’m proudly autistic and I wanted to develop a brand that represented that passion," said Callum, who explained the idea for the designs came by chance in what appeared to be an ordinary day.

“On one of my trips to get my caffeine fix and maybe getting some creative inspiration, I was stuck in a queue.

“Now that may seem uneventful to some, but for me, my autistic experience informs my heightened sense of personal space and sometimes anxiety.

“Think of it being like a car driving so close behind you that you might have a crash if you stop. It makes you uncomfortable and might even cause you to panic. I decided that I needed something that told people that I am autistic and preferred a bit of space.

“Whilst I may often look 'okay,' I can get overwhelmed. I thought enough was enough and set myself the task of designing a one-off T-shirt that would hope to help people understand more about my, and others', experiences.”
