Designer Tommy Hilfiger is taking inclusivity to the next level. This week he launched his Spring Adaptive Collection, a third line aimed at people with disabilities.
In 2016 Hilfiger created a first inclusive clothing line for children. He collaborated with Runway of Dreams, a nonprofit organization which works towards the inclusion of disabled people in fashion industry. In 2017 the designer created his first line aimed at adults with special needs.
Hilfiger’s third line includes all typical types of clothes like dresses, pants, jackets, skirts, and shorts. This line still looks like typical Tommy Hilfiger collection, but with some important alterations. The clothes are modified with magnetic buttons, adjustable hems, velcro closures, one-handed zippers to serve people with various levels of ability.
Hopefully, other designers will follow this example and takes a step forward to be more inclusive and diverse.
