Why do some products evolve when others don’t? What dictates how and when a product will improve or change, or go in and out of fashion? Why are jeans made for a standing body even though we are a sitting society? Has there actually ever been a perfect tee? Why are eyeglasses fashionable when all other assistive products are stigmatizing?
To fulfill our mission, we must first ask if fashion is meeting function or if our assumptions need to evolve.
This is what equity means to the Inclusive Fashion & Design Collective:
Beautiful, functional, sustainable products
Genuinely listening to the wants and needs of people with disabilities
Your brand discovering the benefits of designing for the exception
Your brand reaping the rewards of marketing to diverse communities
Questioning the status quo
.. so who are we?
