Kudos for Tommy Hilfiger for stepping up and making clothes more comprehensive for disabled individuals!
Starting off with kids clothing, Hilfiger collaborated with Runway Dreams to launch a wide range of styles for his Spring 2016 children’s line, modified to better fit kids with different disabilities.
Runway Dreams founder, Mindy Scheier, shared her inspiration that led her to come up with such an idea, and her response will touch your heart. Find out what she says in the video below:
Starting her journey with Tommy Hilfiger, Mindy has planned to continue partnering with other brands and retailers to expand the idea of modified clothing for disabled people. Instead of zippers and buttons, she’s substituted them with velcro and pull-overs, making it easy and painless to wear or to slip it on. She has altered many aspects of basic clothing to make the process of putting on clothes more effortless and accessible.
Whilst the first collection is made just for children, Mindy wants to further her plans for adults and the elderly. She wishes to see the fashion industry include more adaptive clothing.
“I hope that with Runway of Dreams, people of all disabilities will feel confident knowing they can not only dress themselves with greater ease, but be able to wear the clothing brands they want,” Scheier says.
