Tommy Hilfiger's Adaptive Clothing Line Was Made For People With Disabilities

This is how you do inclusive clothing.

Tommy Hilfiger unveiled its new Adaptive clothing line this week, which aims to make getting dressed an easier task for people with disabilities.

In 2016, Tommy Hilfiger partnered with Runway of Dreams, a nonprofit focused on "promoting the differently-abled community in the fashion industry," and together created its first adaptive clothing line. Since then, the company has worked hard on its designs to make its clothing as user-friendly and inclusive as possible.

The new ad campaign for the line showcases predominant figures in the disability community, such as Paralympic gold medalist Jeremy Campbell, dancer Chelsie Hill, motivational speaker Mama Cax, and chef Jeremiah Josey.

There are also Velcro plackets, which replace traditional zippers and buttons.

The collection even includes easy-open necklines designed to make slipping clothing on and off a far less complicated.

According to a press release, the mission of the Tommy Hilfiger adaptive line is to be, "inclusive and empower people of all abilities to express themselves through fashion."

The collection is honestly great, and hopefully we'll soon see other brands follow suit and release their own lines of inclusive apparel.
