Lady Fines debuts collection of adaptive apparel at Tampa Bay Fashion Week
Fashion brand Lady Fines announces the launch of their adaptive clothing brand. The collection offers disability-inclusive apparel no matter the physical ability.
Lady Fines is curated by up-and-coming designer/founder/CEO Lady Natasha Fines. Fines studied at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) and graduated with a degree in Fashion Business Management. After that, she spent a few year working as a fashion buyer for major brands. Fines has created a clothing line embracing diversity, functionality, and style.
“Our clothing is more than just fabric; it’s a movement that challenges limitations and dismantles barriers,” said Fines. “We firmly believe that fashion should be a platform for self-expression and individuality, regardless of physical abilities.”
The collection includes accessible designs that empower and restore independence and autonomy to those with disabilities. Different elements like zippers, velcro, or magnet fasteners are used to make it easier to get dressed. These items of clothing aren’t boring either; think princess puff sleeves, studs, rhinestones, and inspirational logos.
Another aspect of the collection is the Rebels With a Cause Foundation. The foundation was created to advocate for underrepresented fashionistas and fashionistos who feel unseen by other big name fashion brands. Part of the mission is raising awareness of varying illnesses, encourage early diagnosis, and encourage research.
“Our foundation is a testament to our commitment to making inclusivity a reality for all,” said Fines. “We believe that anyone and everyone should feel beautiful and have accessibility to fashionable options.”
Lady Fines wants to shake up the fashion industry. The line will debut its inclusive designs at this year’s Tampa Bay Fashion Week, which is Sept. 27-30.
