Stephanie Alves learned to sew when she was eleven, and over a decades-long career she worked her way up in the world of New York fashion. But only recently, when her sister-in-law was wheelchair bound, did she learn that people with mobility and sensory issues have unique needs that aren’t met by ordinary clothing. After she listened and learned through her tailoring business she discovered a huge untapped market for denim for people with adaptive lifestyles. Her company ABL denim is pushing the envelope in fashion, distributing through retailers like Walmart, and demand is through the roof. We kick off this week’s episode with a segment about Stephanie’s clever designs and get some insights into iteration, customer discovery, and turning ideas into reality.
