Mother creates clothing line for disabled son

About the solution

Jago, now five, fell into the pond at their family home when he was eleven months old. He is a wheelchair user, and is unable to speak and eat solids.

While Lyn was taking care of her son, she realized how the regular clothes were not appropriate for Jago.

So she launched her clothing line – Brothers and Sisters – in April 2016. It consists of bodysuits with stylish designs, which look like regular T-shirts, but don't ride up at the back when the wearer is sitting in a wheelchair. The designs also feature unbutton at the shoulder, so it is easier to access to a feeding tube.

“It became very clear to me that there was a lack of not only resources for parents but access to well designed products for children with additional needs, in particular the clothing market. So with my background in Luxury fashion I decided to design clothing that was not only practical and provided solutions but also beautiful and luxurious”, Lyn explained.

Lyn also created Brainstars, a website with information for parents and caregivers who take care of children with brain injuries.
