Grandmother creates clothing line inspired by granddaughter with Down Syndrome

Shared by Ana Duarte on 2018-03-09 14:18

About the solution

Karen contacted a designer and founded her own company: Down Designs. The company produces 18 different styles of jeans with elastic waistbands for easy dressing and shirts for men, women, teens and children.

"When people with Down syndrome are forced to wear clothes from everyday stores, the clothing makes them look different. All you see is the Down syndrome. When they wear our pants and they fit and they look and feel more comfortable, they can be confident in themselves. You don't see the Down syndrome anymore", the entrepreneur explained.

These clothes can be bought online. Karen intends to keep working on designing more styles and sizes.
