21 Sep Designing clothes with awareness of type 1 diabetes in mind
Type One TV
Introducing Type 1 Clothing, the brainchild of Natalie Balmain, a fashion designer and type 1 diabetic. Featuring zips to skin and special pockets for insulin pumps, these clothes have been designed to make life a little bit easier for people on multiple daily injections or insulin pump treatment. Natalie also hopes that the clothes will raise some awareness of the condition, by allowing type 1s to take their injections in public, without having to struggle with their clothes.
