Abstract

An experimental course in childrenswear was offered which combined fashion and functional design with design for disability for real users. This studio course extended the core apparel design curriculum to include both functional and adaptive design, children as a target market, and knitwear. The capstone was a co-design for disability project in which students were tasked with holistically addressing the clothing-related needs for a specific pediatric user.
