M&S LAUNCH RANGE OF CLOTHING FOR DIFFERENTLY ABLED
Marks & Spencer have launched a line of clothing for differently abled children, under the guise of the 'Adapted for Easy Dressing' range.
The clothing, available exclusively on their website, goes up to age 16, and is informed by a survey of 300 parents. They will include such accessibility features as a softer than normal velcro fastening, pop studs replacing zips, and surreptitious conduits for, say a feeding tube.
“Parents passionately told us that disabilities don’t define their children," said M&S kidswear designer Rebecca Garner in a prepared statement, "so the adaptations shouldn’t define their clothes. That’s why all the products are modelled closely on our main collection”.
On hand to help show off this new range, naturally, were a number of Zebedee models.
