Lucy Jones creates fashionable garments for Wheelchair Users and people with diverse abilities who sit for extended hours at a time. Both groups of people are often unable to consume mainstream fashion. Jones designed this Shirt (2017) for a seated body. It has a cropped silhouette to prevent bunching and discomfort, and features easy-to-use magnetic fasteners.
The sleeves, including the example above, are also designed for ease of dressing.
