A Dundee woman who suffers with depression hopes her colourful new business idea can inspire other people with mental health issues.
Deborah Breen began sewing to ease her depression, then studied textiles at Dundee and Angus College.
The mum-of-two has now used her skills to set up Wilde Mode, a firm specialising in rainbow design pants for the LGBT community.
Deborah, who describes herself as pansexual, said: “I suffer from poor mental health, as do one in four people in Britain.
“In the LGBT community there’s a higher rate of mental health issues, which I think is absolutely terrible.
“I wanted to design something for the LGBT community to be proud of and something that’s especially for them.”
Deborah, 38, launched her product range at the weekend at London Edge fashion trade show.
She said: “By launching my business I want to get the message out that if I can do it, anyone can.”
