Insights & Inspiration
Meet Our Founders
As a graduate with honors from the School of Life, Jacqueline Kelly is an outlier, with course studies ranging from living in the Los Angeles County Foster Care System, to becoming a horse whisperer, to obtaining a letter of recommendation from the Honorable Tom Bradley for graduate school, to competing as a pioneering athlete in women’s pole vault.
She has shared her journey through precedent-setting art shows to benefit battered women & children’s shelters, as a guest speaker at juvenile halls and group homes, and as a volunteer for children’s shelters and Autism charities.
Jacqueline takes heed to the philosophy that we must “pay it forward” and believes that she is doing just that by creating autism jobs and resources through Perel Clothing and affiliate charities.
An artist through-and-through, Chase conceived Perel Clothing through pure instinct.
Having worked extensively as a Surf & Swim Instructor with Autistic and Learning Disabled Children, and also having an autistic brother, aunt and cousin, Chase is intrinsically aware of an unfulfilled need for dignity and recognition for individuals on the Autism and Asperger’s Spectrum.
Chase is trained in Autism Behavior Intervention, School-Based Intervention, and Developmental Intervention.
He believes that through high-profile representation, he can increase autism acceptance, inclusion, and advocacy.
Chase has always been a leader in the eyes of his contemporaries, but he is a caretaker in his heart.
Perel Clothing for Autism Advocacy
Created & Designed by the Autism Community
Perel began in 2011 as a fine-art fashion idea created by Chase Kelly, a designer whose autistic brother inspired him to seek out this wealth of extraordinary minds and tap into their artistic talents. After extensive input from the autism community, Perel is a brand that this demographic can finally call their own.
Chase’s belief that the autism community has a definitive need for acceptance and inclusion came from the everyday journey on the autism spectrum that his brother Jake endures. Along with the triumphs and struggles came the questions. What is Jake’s purpose in life? How would he obtain an education? What kind of job could he have that would be fulfilling? How would he survive socially? Where is he going and how will he get there…
Perel is a catalyst to provide answers. The company donates 50% of its profits to select charities in order to provide much-needed help with such things as educational equipment, therapies, technology, safety equipment and service animals. Perel intends to offer sponsorships, scholarships and in particular vocational training and job opportunities that autistic individuals can implement for the rest of their lives.
Most importantly Perel seeks to create a platform for connectivity; a social media and information hub that provides support and a place of understanding.
Perel currently offers cutting-edge fashion tees that anybody can wear in solidarity for the cause. The designs are beautiful, unique, and transcend anything available in the current marketplace.
