Hey guys,

I am an undergraduate student majoring in fashion business. I am currently working on my dissertation project about inclusive fashion retail environment. I am conducting a research to find out the potential ways for fashion retailers to create a better and inclusive shopping experience for all consumers. Therefore, I am looking for people that have limited physical, visual, cognitive, etc., capabilities that are willing to be interview, to understand the needs, expectations and their shopping behaviour. Please let me know if anyone is willing to participate in the e-interview.
Thank you so much, your help will be much appreciated!

    @Gill53, hey gill, my dissertation will be about inclusive fashion retail environment. I would like to understand the shopping behaviour, demand, and expectations of people with physical or any other form of disabilities. This allows me to find a potential ways for fashion retailers to improve their store accessibility, thus allowing fashion store to be more inclusive and accessible for everyone

    I have gone 100% online as I now found trying on clothes in shops had become a slow and laborious process due to spinal, shoulder and leg pain. 

    Im prepared to respond if it would be of help?

    Hi @ifb_ntu 
    Is it just for adults? I could take part in view of how it affects my 11yr old daughter with Autism.

    I don't wish to be interviewed; however, trying on clothes in a shop can be a nightmare. Often the pull cords that are in disabled changing rooms aren't at floor level, so if you fall you can't reach them. I also find disabled changing rooms are not always unisex, therefore my carer can't come in with me. 
    I do believe technology could help enormously; I have seen on my own laptop you can use functions to show what a computer-modelled object would look like in the home, I am sure there must be technology to show you what you would look like in certain clothing without having to try the items on in the shop. If you are wheelchair bound, it can be difficult or impossible to see/reach clothing on racks that are higher up. More space is needed to safely get around in a chair. For those who have limited mobility, signage to say where items are would help reduce walking around, that and clustering the same item type together also would help. I often find there can be several stands scattered around with no logical order, thus if you are looking for shorts, you can be walking around from stand to stand, across huge distances to see all that is available. Either that, or cluster the same sizes together, then you only have to visit your size stand and don't have to move clothes around to find your size (that can be very heavy going). I hope this helps.
