Season 10, Episode 31 of 99

The fashion industry is starting to create more options for people with disabilities. Clothing can be a major barrier to independence for people living with disabilities. While the needs of the community have largely been ignored by the fashion industry, things are starting to change. In 2016, Tommy Hilfiger became the first major fashion designer to launch a line of clothing for people with disabilities. And a program called Open Style Lab at the Parsons School of Design in New York works with a team of designers, engineers and therapists to create clothing and other technologies that are accessible and inclusive. NewsHour Weekend's Megan Thompson reports.
