Clothing for the Handicapped, the Aged, and Other People with Special Needs
This is actually a very useful concept for a book. (We posted one at ALB with a similar topic. Click here to compare to take a look.) I hope public libraries everywhere have a book on this topic. I also hope that they are within a decade in publication date. No one wants to dress like it’s 1979, including the “handicapped, aged, and other people with special needs.” In fact, today’s fashions are potentially more complicated than they were in 1979 with different fasteners, more pieces, and different draping. Fashion aside, there are also medical and technological considerations. There are fancier wheel chairs and different-shaped crutches. There are medical advances in things like tracheatomies, colostomies, and even dialysis that require access to the body, which can be disguised by or accessed through clothing differently too! Anyone have any suggestions for newer/better titles?
