MARYLAND HEIGHTS, MO (KTVI)- The Deaf Empowerment Awareness Foundation (DEAF), Inc. is getting ready for the Deafilicious Fashion show on February 21. The event will raise money for the foundation. It will also raise awareness of how fashion can affect function for those with hearing impairments.

For instance, interpreters usually stay away from wearing small patterns, shiny accessories and rings. Certain items can distract anyone who needs sign language to communicate.

Partners for the show include Maurice's, Kohl`s, TJ Maxx, JC Penney and the National Council Jewish Women.
