Excited to Share IZ Adaptive’s Revamped Site & Inventory

IZ Adaptive has been an award-winning adaptive clothing line for the seated body since 2009, spearheaded by renowned Canadian fashion designer Izzy Camilleri. Izzy intimately knows the world of fashion, and know that change is always a good thing, which is why she’s revamped her website & inventory.

I couldn’t be more excited either. Prints are one of the biggest changes you’ll notice in her collection, with leopard print and floral prints now available with their adorable Capri pants and Women’s blazers. They’ve also added a “Dressing Easy” category that exclusively contains some really cool items to help you dress easier.

The items they’ve included will delight anyone interested in clothing construction. You’ll find their super smart Open Back Sweater, that has an open back with snaps, their Solid Magnet Shirt with easy magnet closures and their Tear Away Pant, which has snap closures on the outside of each leg.

IZ Adptive’s Men’s area has also been given a refresher. Not only will you find a bigger selection of everything from shirts and jackets (these are also available in new prints like camouflage) to increased athletic wear options, they now have male models modeling their clothing.

They’ve hired several new female models too, all real-life IZ users, who you will see throughout their online catalog, and each representing an unique ability. IZ is showing real-life users in real-life situations in their images and it couldn’t be more awesome.

Above all, IZ Adaptive clothes are meant to help you feel better about yourself. From their shop in downtown Toronto, they’re always thinking of the next great garment for people who use wheelchairs and they eagerly and gladly welcome any garment ideas and suggestions, which is so great.

So if you have any kind of light bulb of inspiration, even an inkling, make sure to email it to info@izadaptive.com. They are open to as many suggestions as they can get.

In love with print leggings? Here are a few adapted pairs

I’m so in love with print leggings lately.  I’ve found they flatter legs that are paralyzed really well. So naturally, I was thrilled to see that IZ Adaptive, clothing for wheelchair-users, now offers a few pairs of their own.

Here are her latest additions, if you’re interested.

Print leggings: $39/pair. I love her print options too. So cute! They are pink cheetah print, black/brown cheetah print, black and white plaid and my personal favorite, purple and pink plaid.

Faux leather leggings: $89.99/pair. These babies are actually easy to put on too because they have a Jersey cotton back. Brill. And black is the only color option, but that’s really the only color you’d want in pleather anyways.

These will make a great addition to any Christmas shopping list for the fashionable lady who happens to use a wheelchair.

Peruse all of the new arrivals: IZ Adaptive Clothing

IZ Adaptive, one of my favorite adaptive clothing designers, is having an awesome sale on winter coats for wheelchair-users.  And being that fall just started, it’s the perfect time to buy an amazing winter coat that will keep you toasty warm and last you for years to come.

IZ is offering 25% off any coat or jacket ordered before October 7th.  That is one awesome deal too, considering how beautiful these coats are.  And they sell them for both men and women and in a variety of styles.

Swing coats, capes with with a standalone collar and a faux leather belt, beautiful full length wool coats (with higher backs so they don’t go under your butt), her awesome trench coat, men’s wool blend bomber jackets and a very cool men’s winter cape, the adapted POS you’ll find at IZ Adaptive are unlike anything you’ll find anywhere else.

I have two of her amazing jackets, one of which is the modified trench coat for a wheelchair-user, and I must say it’s one of the most beautiful jackets I’ve never owned, and boy is it flattering.
