"Independence Day Clothing was started with a mission to help people with autism and specifically those with sensory integration disorders...with products that make people feel special in the skin they are in. After designing ID clothing with reversible and personal tracking features we realized that lots of people, not only those with autism, needed and were tirelessly searching for clothing with these special "perks". ID Clothing solves a problem that not only the special needs community has - cutting out the hassles of getting dressed," explains the business's website.
The fashionable clothes are free of tags, zippers, and buttons. They are made with sensory-friendly fabrics, are reversible and come with an optional pocket for GPS. The designs are made to accommodate persons with cognitive and physical impairments.
"Independence Day/ID is a women-and-minority run company drawing from the resources of the fashion, design, special education, media and finance sectors of New York City."
