African Designer Creates Clothing To Aid The Visually Impaired

Clothes, most of which are designed for the average person, are visual objects. South African designer Balini Naidoo has an answer to this problem: Clothing that looks great from afar but also communicates meaning when touched.

The clothes are mostly done in plain and neutral colors so that pieces easily work well with each other. Using embroidery, Naidoo has integrated Braille writing into the garments. This helps the wearer identify and understand the piece he or she is holding before putting it on. Aside from giving the blind a more active role in choosing what clothes to wear, the writing on the pieces also helps them dress independently.
