Clothing collection designed to ease suffering of Parkinson’s disease sufferers
Fashion designer Monika Dugar has released her “Reset” clothing collection designed to aid mobility in Parkinson’s disease sufferers.
The striped garments are designed to “reset” the brain by allowing people with restricted mobility disorders such as Parkinson’s to dress themselves by avoiding buttons, zippers and other features that require precision of movement, reports design-news platform Dezeen.
It also features a graphic print that is believed to improve mobility visually.
Dugar is a recent graduate of the London College of Fashion, and produced the collection following her father’s diagnosis with Parkinson’s disease. The work is based on research examining the effects of parallel lines on a walking surface. Dugar attempts in the collection to reproduce the observed effect of parallel lines in assisting people with Parkinson’s disease to get dressed.
The colours and cut of the clothing are expected to appeal to a younger market.
