Designer Clothes for Kids with Special Needs

As parents of children with special needs, managing the everyday tasks that may otherwise be taken for granted can be a challenge.  New Jersey mom, Mindy Scheier, met the daily challenge of dressing her son Oliver, who has rigid-spine muscular dystrophy, with style – literally. 

            A fashion designer by trade, Scheier created designs with features helpful to a range of disabilities, including magnetic closures and adjustable necklines.  She has since partnered with Tommy Hilfiger, whose 2016 spring collection features children’s pieces with her design modifications.
