Following years of designing clothing that makes dressing for men, women and children with disabilities easier, Tommy Hilfiger’s adaptive offering is now available in Australia.

Following Tommy Hilfiger’s own familial experience with children with autism, his namesake brand has produced an innovative range of clothing that still maintains the brand’s inherent Americana cool, but also utilises simple yet discreet modifications, including easy closures, seated wear solutions, and fits for prosthetics, as well as wide-leg openings and sensory-friendly knits.

With the knowledge that there are more than one billion globally living with a disability, Hilfiger has long placed importance on democratising the fashion industry, ensuring inclusivity and accessibility are at the brand’s core.

Premier luxury fashion portal, Showroom-X, has officially launched in Australian.

Dedicated to celebrating the Australian spirit through the curation of luxury women’s ready-to-wear pieces, accessories, art objects for the home and wellness products for the mind, body and soul, the digital platform will showcase both established and emerging local brands while keeping craftsmanship, pure materials, quiet pleasures and the notion of modern heirlooms front of mind in its selection process.

In line with its philosophy to promote responsible creativity and design, sustainable leisurewear brand Allbirds is partnering with LA-based streetwear studio, Chinatown Market, for a multimedia collaboration.

Partnering with the well-known upcycling artist, Nicole McLaughlin, for a charitable fashion venture, Allbirds and Chinatown Market together have created six unique and sustainable pieces crafted out of scrap materials.

These custom wearable art pieces are set to be auctioned off on Chinatown Market’s website on August 8, with 100 per cent of the proceeds going on to directly benefit two charitable organisations: The Okra Project and Sunrise Movement.

Allbirds and Chinatown Market’s collaboration will also see a five-episode, IGTV series featuring renowned creatives helming each episode to talk about sustainable design and DIY methods.
