In the world of fashion, the needs of those with disabilities are overlooked. But IZ Adaptive is working to change that.
I was recently drawn to an advertisement for IZ Adaptive on social media. It is a fashion line that focuses on the unique needs of those using wheelchairs, taking into consideration comfort, function and current fashion trends.
|One of my favorite pieces is the Separating Biker Jacket for Men retailed at $449. The way the cuts accentuate the shoulders while ensuring the ease of donning and doffing is gorgeous!|
|Women's Tear Away Pant retail $59 offer a a higher back and bulk-free front.|
|Open Back Jeans retail $79 offer easy donning wrap around panel with velcro strip.|
|Men's Casual Magnet Shirt, currently on sale $29.99 uses magnets for easy fastening and an A line cut for a flattering fit.|
|Grace Strapless Gown retail $375|
Many of her other designs have been featured in international magazines like Vogue and Flare. When asked about ever seeing IZ Adaptive designs in the spotlight, Ms. Camierelli said, "We have had our IZ pieces used in Fashion Magazines on high fashion models. They were used in a different context of high fashion on able bodies models. We are already seeing alternative models on runways during this past Fashion Week in NY, so I think we will see more and more exposure for fashion going to the next level."
So if you know someone who happens to use a wheelchair and is looking for clothing that fits their style and budget, as well as their seated posture, consider looking into IZ Adaptive, where fashion meets function.
