15 Companies That Are Going the Extra Mile for Their Special Customers
People with special needs have had to customize their own clothing for a long time. But recently many companies, from iconic fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger to affordable brands like Target, have begun to launch adaptive clothing lines to prove that special needs and style are not mutually exclusive. They are making clothes with magnetic closures, easily-fastening undergarments, and fantastic Halloween costumes for wheelchair users.
We at Bright Side adore people who do their work with love and creativity and we want to introduce you to companies that have gone above and beyond to show their respect and appreciation for their customers with special needs.
