Inclusivity in the fashion industry

emilyangoldemilyangold Member Posts: 6 Listener
The fashion industry is become more diverse and beginning to cater for different body types, but the trend for being inclusive for people with disabilities is slow. I wanted to start the conversation on how retailers can do more for us in terms of product design and innovation to make our lives easier. What are your thoughts?

    Hello @emilyangold welcome to the community. I would say the best thing that companies can do is to have disabled people on the projects, part of every stage of development. Consult and employ disabled people to get accurate designs, perspectives and innovations out there. Thanks for posting this and I hope more of our members share their thoughts on this.
