Tommy Hilfiger is making clothes easier to wear for people with disabilities
All I can say is good job on Tommy Hilfiger for making this adjustment to their clothing line and at the same time, it raises the question of why are not more clothing companies doing the same?
Tommy Hilfiger has announced that they have a new clothing line which is specifically designed for people with disabilities. The whole concept of the new change brought by the company is to make it easier for people with disabilities to wear their clothes.
The sale for the new Tommy Hilfiger collection will begin on Wednesday. The way that the new collection works is that it uses magnets and velcro to help make it easier for people with disabilities to get dressed.
Even though, the collection is brand new and just about to take off, there is no shortage of style. It is reported that the line has 37 different styles available for men and 34 for women. This includes everything from shirts, pants, jackets, sweaters and dresses.
Some of the changes made from traditional clothing designs that we have seen before include, button-down shirts which have buttons and cuffs that fasten with magnets. The new design on pants features magnetic flies, zippers and adjustable hems to accommodate leg braces. They also have pull-on loops inside of waistbands.
“Inclusivity and the democratization 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 through fashion.”
Tommy Hilfiger has also released a line of clothes last year for children with disabilities. The brand worked with Runway of Dreams, which is a nonprofit organization who main focus is to make fashion more accessible for people with disabilities. Kudos to Tommy Hilfiger on this one.
