Mainstreaming accessibility into fashion collections without creating an adapted clothing line.

All brands and designers have inclusive garments, but they are unaware of it.

Accessibility and inclusivity are done unconsciously, depending on trends and seasons. If for example, a wide-leg trouser is in fashion, this makes it easier to pass my feet, to wear it with a prosthesis.

Designers are not aware of the effect of their choices, they don’t know what accessibility looks like in the garment, and they don’t know which audience it benefits. The needs of people with reduced mobility are different from the needs of people with sensory (sight, hearing, touch) or cognitive (mental, intellectual) limitations.

Fashion design is extremely adaptable. It includes many processes, pattern making, tailoring, materials, fastenings, colours, and embellishments. The possibilities of designing a garment are almost infinite and the decisions we make hugely influence the accessibility of the garment.

The challenge is to make fashion without the need to make an adaptive line for people with disabilities.

Applying accessibility is simple, every designer can do it.

Market

15% of the world’s population has some physical, cognitive or sensory limitation. A market of 1.2 billion people with an impact in Europe of €70 billion in 2018.

The market for clothing for people with disabilities is severely underrepresented:

  • Fashionable and functional clothing is in limited supply.
  • It is a growing and exploitable market.
  • It is a loyal consumer.
  • We all benefit from accessibility.

Inclusion will generate a $350 billion opportunity by 2023 globally. Are you ready to get this market?
