Tommy Hilfiger creates clothing line for people with special needs

In Spring 2016, iconic designer Tommy Hilfiger launched an adaptive clothing line for kids with autism and other special needs. That clothing line proved to be so popular that in Fall 2017, Tommy Hilfiger expanded his adaptive clothing line to include adult sizes.

Tommy Hilfiger, along with his wife Dee, are Autism Speaks board members and have long been autism advocates.

“My family has been affected by autism and the experience has enlightened me to their needs”, Hilfiger said in an interview with HollywoodLife.com. “I thought – wouldn’t it be great to take our (Tommy Hilfiger) styling and make it adaptable for children with special needs.”
