23 Mar 2023
Lifestyle and Leisure

In 2022, inclusivity barriers remain ever present within the fashion industry - from the inaccessibility of navigating shops and brand websites to the lack of diversity represented on catwalks, it instils barriers to buying clothes that often means the disability community feel they are unable to wear something that they both feel comfortable in and represents their personal identity and expression. In this panel discussion, we will hear from our experts on what the challenges are that this community are faced with due to the current state of play in the fashion industry and what is being done to rethink and change the future of adaptive fashion.
