CreakyJoints Member, Celebrities, and Athletes Walk the Runway on
September 11
th During New York Fashion Week

today announces it will present the Spring/Summer 2019 Tumbler and
Tipsy® by Michael Kuluva collection at the STYLE360 New York Fashion
Week. As a person living with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and an active
member of CreakyJoints, Michael inspires the arthritis community when he
translates his experiences into innovative, bright, and
arthritis-friendly clothing. This year's fashion-forward collection is
street inspired with a "downtown" feel that features collaborations with
street artists who put their personal touch on individual garments.

In partnership with PAOM, a main focus of the entire collection —from
day wear to athletic wear to dress clothing— is the inclusion of
magnetic closures, which are designed to be on trend yet accessible.
Getting dressed can be challenging for many arthritis patients, who may
experience pain and limitations when it comes to buttoning or hooking
their clothes.

"My collection takes fun seriously. I want people to smile and feel good
about themselves when they wear my clothes. This year's show will be the
best yet as we feature Olympic athletes and rising stars from reality TV
alongside top models, including a member of the CreakyJoints community,"
said Michael Kuluva, designer of Tumbler and Tipsy. "CreakyJoints is a
fantastic partner because we both believe in the power of being
positive. The organization has an open door to accessing community and
educational resources, as well as the opportunity for everyday people
like myself to participate in research with its free ArthritisPower®
mobile app, which I use regularly to track how I'm feeling and
responding to my treatment."

The Tumbler and Tipsy by Michael Kuluva runway show will take place at 3
p.m. on September 11, 2018 at STYLE360 at 639 W. 46th Street,
New York, NY 10036. This year, Mirai Nagasu, U.S. National Figure
Skating Champion and 2018 Olympic Bronze Medalist, will walk the runway
along with the iconic model Amanda Lepore, returning for her second
appearance. In addition, CreakyJoints Patient Council member and
ankylosing spondylitis advocate Charis Hill will be featured modeling
Michael's collection.

"We love the example Michael Kuluva sets for the arthritis community by
not putting a limit on what he can or cannot due while living with a
chronic disease," said Seth Ginsberg, president and co-founder of
CreakyJoints. "It's a pleasure to support Michael's Tumbler and Tipsy
show and we congratulate him on demonstrating how to live your best life
with rheumatoid arthritis."

About Rheumatoid Arthritis
Arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory disease that causes pain,
stiffness, swelling and loss of function in the joints throughout the
body, but typically the small joints of the hands and feet. RA can
strike at any age and, if left untreated, can cause joint damage and
even permanent joint destruction or harm to the body's organs. RA is an
autoimmune disease that is treated typically by a specialist called a
rheumatologist. Read more about managing RA in "Raising the Voice of
