Styleability: More than just fashion


Local disabled adults and young people at three of Eagle One's retail centres got a crash course in the latest fashions and how to adapt clothing to suit their needs during 2017 at  special ‘Styleability’ sessions.

With the help of a professional stylist, those taking part in the session learned how to make simple adjustments to the latest on-trend clothing – such as replacing fiddly buttons with velcro so those with fine motor skill difficulties can dress themselves. They also had the opportunity to explore what styles of clothing would make them feel good about themselves, and how they can use fashion to boost their confidence.
