What is adaptive fashion?

The clothes we wear, the shoes we slip on, and the way we dress to greet the world say more about us than we realise. After all, fashion is a powerful art-form that allows us to own our narrative, express our individuality, and display our confidence without uttering a single word.

Unfortunately, not everyone shares the same thrill when they get dressed in the morning.

In Australia, 20% of people have trouble dressing, finding clothes that fit, and owning their individual style. In 2018, it was estimated that around 357,000 children aged 0–14 had some level of disability. Despite this staggering figure, mainstream fashion has historically been slow to address the needs of differently-abled people and children.

Where adaptive clothing does exist to overcome these challenges, the clothes are often poor quality, overly focused on function, and lack sophistication and style. That’s where Adaptive fashion revolutionises all of that.

Adaptive fashion is specialised clothing that blends fashion and function to make getting dressed easier, pain-free, and convenient for differently-abled people. It recognises that every one of us, irrespective of our age and body-type, has our own sense of style, so it offers trendy clothing that adapts to us. Essentially, it’s any alteration designed to help you get dressed, feel empowered, and show up as your best self, irrespective of your age or how able-bodied you are.

Instead of fiddly buttons, it’s stylish magnetic closures that attach like magic and one-handed zippers that make slipping on trendy sneakers a breeze.
