Shopping for adaptive clothing that marries both style and functionality has just got a whole lot easier with the launch of an online platform – Every Human – a new venture bringing sought-after adaptive clothing brands from around the world to Australia for the first time.
The team behind the new inclusive brand started with a simple question; ‘why do 1 in 5 Australians who have difficulty dressing experience such limited clothing and footwear options where functionality and style go hand-in-hand?’
Up to now the choices in Australia have been limited. Limited brands, limited stores, and limited styles has meant people’s clothes were medicalised, uncomfortable, or unsuitable. After speaking to numerous people about their own experiences – mums, dads, brothers, sisters, teachers, colleagues, Every Human arrived at a clear solution: a curated online platform for lifestyle-driven adaptive clothing and footwear stocked with items you’ll want to wear, designed by people who have also faced the challenge of finding, using, and loving clothing that works for them.
Fashion can be an incredibly powerful tool in helping self-confidence; it’s a language that speaks for itself, allowing someone to express themselves without saying a word. Every Human’s goal is to make you feel and look amazing through clothing that allows you to be in control of your narrative and your self-reliance.
The simple, easy-to-use platform makes the process of finding, purchasing, and, if necessary, returning the clothes easy and hassle-free. They offer live chat and reliable customer services if you need any help, and their shipping and returns policies are customer friendly. Their promise is to find clothing that works for you and not the other way around, making stocking your wardrobe stress free, giving you the freedom to focus on things that matter most to you.
The brands available for the S/S 2020 season are:
Billy Footwear: Easy On, Easy Off & AFO Friendly Shoes
Kurkside: Easy On, Easy Off & AFO Friendly Shoes
MagnaReady: Magnetic Closure Clothing
IZ Adaptive: Clothing Designed for the Seated Position

Beyond the clothing, Every Human’s aim is to build a community of like-minded people by digging deeper into their customers’ life stories, holding physical events such as the pop-up stores, and online interaction with their customers.
They are also intent on making a positive social impact with the sale of three unique t-shirt designs – each one supporting a different initiative identified to be among the best in their fields of breaking down barriers in the disability space.
Customers are invited to pay what they want for a t-shirt and 100% of the profits are sent to the respective project.
The partners are:

All profits raised during December will go to paying for medical expenses and adjustments to living arrangements required to support and enable her to live her best life.
