Accessible Attire

Clothing brands expand lines to accommodate people with disabilities

Implications - The fashion industry has slowly begun to accept the importance of creating clothing for people with body types outside traditional beauty norms, and the most proactive brands are taking that logic a step farther. Conscious fashion brands have begun designing clothing with disabled people as the target wearers, recognizing the specific needs of broader swaths of people. Brands that consider accessibility not only increase their base of consumers, but also demonstrate their thoughtfulness as a whole.
