Adaptive Fashion

Custom Tailoring

The Problem Statement

I need custom tailoring for my apparel as I am a special needs person and require a lot of movement during sports and travel.

The Goal Statement

Design an app which has capability to take order from a special need person and let the tailor understand the same to output a near perfect apparel.

The Research

  • It is difficult for people with special needs to get custom apparel.
  • The material for the apparel is mostly not suitable for people  with limited movement.
  • If the person has hyper movement then the apparel and material does not provide comfort and flexibility.
  • The stitched clothes should support long hours of wear and movability.
  • Should go with latest trend in fashion, print and colour. 

The Solution


  • Aesthetics 
  • Navigation
  • Typography
  • Visual design
  • Accessibility


  • As most of my target audience will be specially abled need of accessibility is the most important.
  • The need to get information describing disability can be intimidating, hence special care needs to be taken to get the input right or else the whole effort fails. 
  • The solution should make them aware of the product and its colour and feel.
  • The accessibility feature should also be added, meaning, read aloud, haptic feed back.
  • How many categories are we considering/addressing ? Category based on need: Physically disabled, recovery , elderly, assisted dressing, dwarfism, Patients ? Category based on apparel: Headgear, footwear, top wear, bottom wear, full length body suit, bath wear,
