Izzy Camilleri, one of the designers involved in the WARD + ROBES project is also involved in a project which is based on designing clothing for men and women in wheelchairs. IZ Collection is a fashionable and functional line of clothing created for wheelchairs users to make then feel more comfortable and good.
‘Our clothing has signature cuts and styles for a seated body, which fit better, look nicer and feel more comfortable than standard mainstream clothing, all without interfering with wheelchair mechanics. We use quality fabrics, selected for stretch and durability. IZ garments are created ethically in our studio, where every consideration is made so that you get the best possible product and service.’ More information
The garments are designer in a way so it is comparable for people who sit a lot or all the time. The back of jackets are removed to improve the movement and the waist on the trousers is altered so it covers the back more better.

The IZ Collection company doesn’t exactly work with customising clothes to make people them selves but helps people by altering the garments and seems to make it more comfortable for people in wheelchairs to wear. I think this company will make a great hypothetical competitor company.
