A goal of awareness and inclusion

Drawing on previous industry experience, critical disability studies, and inclusive design, my aim is to produce a toolkit to guide designers to a more user-led, inclusive approach.

First, a deeper look is needed at the areas of practice in which adaptive or inclusive sportswear exists, as well as external contributing factors.

This project locates functional apparel design within the context of fashion industry practice and inclusive design. External contributing factors to how adaptive sportswear is perceived are media portrayals of disability, engineering practice, and critical disability studies.
