Importance of adaptive clothing in the world of fashion

Adaptive clothing makes getting dressed and staying in the garments easy for people with a diverse range of needs. The community for people with disability is very wide and therefore designers must prioritise comfort and convenience over almost anything else for this genre of clothing. Thanks to technology and assistance from members of their target market, inclusive designers are now able to not only make functional clothes for the wearer; but also help their personality shine through their clothes.

TAAGA — Fresh as Youth

Feel it or not, fall is here. And with the new season, TAAGA is here with its fresh tie-and-dye prints and snazzy designs. Keeping the hide-and-seek mood of the sun and clouds in mind, the brand’s collection is both summer-friendly and easy on the eyes, a perfect amalgamation of comfort and joyfully creative style. Dyes have been an indispensable part of TAAGA for as long as one can remember and the brand has routinely played it up with colours, prints and cuts that are experimental, playful and bold in equal measure. This time around, the creative minds behind the lively brand have worked with refreshing festive, vibrant, and soothing colours and patterns at the core of the TAAGA fall offering, in cuts that are both simple and unconventional.

Merlot: Giving comfort clothing a chic twist

The highly competitive women’s apparel industry is saturated with designers trying to think outside the box and combine style and substance. Consumers are also spoiled for choices and at this point, it can be somewhat tricky to grasp their attention. Sania Afrin, however, makes it look easy. The engineer turned entrepreneur is the owner of two successful ventures, Merlot and Purple Mallow. The latter focuses on accessories for women, and since 2017 has become a household name. But it’s Merlot that has been making major headways lately with its meticulously crafted clothing items that is specifically designed for fashion savvy students and working women.

Best part, it’s perfect for the Bangladeshi weather.

Boho jewellery: All colours under the sky

Versatile enough to wear on traditional or western clothing, the boho trend is blazing a bold trail across the fashion scene and the magic seems to be catching on. One of the best ways to rock boho or hippie jewellery is to give it a plain canvas so that the outfit does not interfere with the bold interplay of colours, textures and designs of the ornaments.
