Tommy Hilfiger is looking to make fashion more accessible.

There’s an estimated one billion people worldwide living with a disability, so chances are you have or know someone who may face issues doing the day-to-day tasks that many of us take for granted. With children on his own who are affected by autism, Tommy Hilfiger understands first hand that people with disabilities need to be afforded the same level of respect and comfort as the rest of us.

His ‘Adaptive Range’ which launched firstly for kids in the United States in Spring 2016, followed by an adult collection in Fall 2017, before landing in Australia this week, aims to make getting dressed for people living with disabilities a little easier. Here the iconic label has delivered modern style with innovative modifications in the form of; sensory-friendly knits, wide-leg openings to accommodate prosthetics and magnetic buttons to make for dressing easier.

 

When so often we are prescribed the “right” image by the fashion world, it’s refreshing to know that one of the giants of the fashion world is catering to different bodies and abilities. Check out the range above and head here to shop it now:
