May its for the first time a designer made a range of clothings exclusively for disabled people. The designer is none another ‘Tommy Hilfiger’. He launched the ‘Spring Adaptive Collection’ aimed at disabled people.
In 2016, he created a inclusive line of clothing specially for kids, collaborating with Runway of Dreams, a nonprofit organization which works towards the inclusion of disabled people in fashion industry. In 2017 the designer created his first line aimed at adults with special needs.
Hilfiger’s third line includes all typical types of clothes like dresses, pants, jackets, skirts, and shorts. This line still looks like typical Tommy Hilfiger collection, but with some important alterations. The clothes are modified with magnetic buttons, adjustable hems, velcro closures, one-handed zippers to serve people with various levels of ability.
This is a great initiative by Tommy Hilfiger. We hope that other designers too will follow this trend.
