Every week we like to share our favourite positive news stories ➕ from around the world ? and this one about Tommy Hilfiger’s new collection caught our eye ?.
The fashion designer’s new clothing line is called Tommy Adaptive and has been specifically made for people with disabilities for whom the daily task of getting dressed ? in the morning can be one of frustration when the navigating buttons ? and zips ? just isn’t that simple ?.
Tommy Adaptive features 37 new styles for men ? and 34 for women ? and includes jackets, trousers, shirts ? and skirts ? with one-handed zippers, magnetic clasps, adjustable hems and Velcro straps.
The idea was conceived after the fashion house teamed up with charity Runway of Dreams ?, a charity which promotes the differently-abled community in the fashion industry, to create an adaptive clothing range for children ?. It was received so well that Hilfiger followed it up with the adult line ?.
“Inclusivity and the democratisation of fashion have always been at the core of my brand’s DNA, ?” Tommy Hilfiger said in a statement. “These collections continue to build on that vision, empowering differently abled adults to express themselves for fashion ?.”
