Kathy D Woods – Clothing for dwarves

About the solution

Kathy was always into fashion, but she couldn’t find appropriate designer clothing for her.

“We would go to different stores, and it would be a challenge. Just finding the proper clothes that fit. Little people, as you know, we have big bottoms. And because we have big bottoms, it was hard to find pants and jeans to get over our bottoms. You would have to go up an extra size, which was a size you really didn’t need. . . . Because they make clothes for average-size people, the taller the person is, the wider the leg is,” creating more problems, she said in a Washington Post interview.

Convinced that custom clothes shouldn’t have to be the only option, Woods ultimately took her idea for a ready-to-wear line for people of short stature to the incubator Fashion Business Inc., which focuses on helping women and members of other minority groups develop their ideas for fashion companies. And working with a designer, Woods rolled out her first line last year, focusing on providing high-quality basics for women.
