Design Meets Disability

I love the statement that design depends on constraints. It was also very interesting to read about origins of plywood, because we are currently making skateboards in another class, which are made of plywood. In the case of fashion vs. disability, I feel that even though it is unfortunately true that disability is seen by some as something to be hidden, and fashion could definitely be a tool to embrace each person’s unique attributes, fashion can also sometimes be too over the top. I’ve had 3 different glasses designs over the years and had never thought of glasses as design meeting disability, but this is definitely true, and each design can make a person be perceived completely differently.
