'IZ' is a stylish apparel brand that designs clothing for wheelchair users. One of the issues that the fashion industry has long struggled with is the problem of accessibility. This brand aims to bring more awareness to accessibility issues by making stylish clothes for those with physical disabilities.

IZ is a Canadian company founded by renowned designer Izzy Camilleri. Camilleri recently designed a collection of high-end garments that can be worn by those in wheelchairs. While the garments do not look any different from traditional apparel, each item has been altered in a way that makes it easier for those in wheelchairs to put on and wear comfortably throughout the day. In order to raise awareness about the new collection, IZ teamed up with the Toronto-based creative agency 'The Garden.'

The new collection raises awareness about the need for clothing for wheelchairs users as well as more general issues surrounding accessibility in North America.
