The importance of diversity
The impact of Adaptive fashion goes beyond inclusivity.
The importance of diversity, which has become prevalent in society at the same time, is another essential feature of adaptive fashion.
This has had a synergistic impact, raising awareness of the urge of responding to minorities’ concerns and dissatisfaction.
Its influence can also be seen in the fact that models on the runway are now a diverse group of people who are not limited by colour, body type, or gender.
While still in its infancy, trends developed for adaptive fashion are becoming mainstream.
Furthermore, they can go beyond being clothing for people with disabilities to becoming ready-to-wear clothing for the modern age, which able-bodied people may also wear comfortably.
A niche market
It is without a doubt that adaptive fashion has made significant strides in the past few years.
However, it still remains a niche market that is failing to attract audiences, despite positive figures and multicultural product releases.
According to a recent New York Times investigation, algorithms on sites like Facebook and Instagram systematically ban adaptive fashion ads.
The rest of the time, it comes down to substance misidentification: products advertising medical equipment are immediately rejected due to compliance violations.
