Abstract

This paper intends to propose a platform dedicated to a community for inclusive fashion. This platform can innovate in the awareness creation pro- cess by involving a wide range of stakeholders through a novel combination of visually-centered networking/collaboration together with a powerful recom- mendation system based on data analytics. This solution can potentially impact positively the well-being of more than 50 million of motor/physical disabled citizens as consumers of fashion products. This can be achieved by bringing to- gether three different networks: (i) fashion consumers, emphasizing consumers with disabilities; (ii) companies from fashion/garment/footwear industry; (iii) social and research organizations supporting disabled people. This will allow to create individual and collective awareness about sustainability at the social level demanding the engagement of groups of citizens and industries in sharing in- formation and knowledge and developing ideas and solutions for people with disabilities facing problems related to fashion, garment and footwear products and services.
