“The fashion industry has some catching up to do when it comes to considering people with disabilities. That’s according to the results of a recent study, which surveyed 113 people with mobility impairments. The findings showed that about half of the respondents were unable to attend events like weddings, school dances and job interviews or even work out because they couldn’t find appropriate clothing.”
Recently I was interviewed by Alia Hoyt of “How Stuff Works” to address the lack of fashionable options designed for the disabled community.
The industry designs clothing for tall, short and plus size people, yet ignores the fact that there are millions of people in the US living with a disability.
Please read the article to have a better understanding of some of the challenges that this growing demographic faces.
