Tommy Hilfiger and Target make clothes for differently abled people...

"Lost in the conversation of diversity in fashion are the needs of differently abled people, but one designer is trying to change that. Tommy Hilfiger, who released a collection of adaptive clothing for children in the spring of 2016, is extending his collection to include clothes for adults"

The article goes on to describe how the range will include thoughtful detailing such as "front and back closures to help pull clothes over the head, Velcro closures and magnetic flies to assist in putting on pants, adjusted leg openings and hems to accommodate leg braces and orthotics, plus magnetic zippers that will zip and unzip with one hand, as well as pull-on pant loops inside of waist bands that fit around the wrist to pull on pants easier."

hooray! 


What changes or adaptations would you like to see on clothes in the high street? 

Can you recommend any inclusive clothing brands or designers?

    @CaderMac hi! I think this is definitely a step in the right direction. I believe Marks and Spencer released a line of body suits and pants with poppers on. This is definitely something we need more of! All it takes sometimes is a few magnets and a bit of clever design!
