5 jackets in a collection, designed to articulate 5 different types of people living with dementia (patients, carers, relatives, occupational therapists and designers) who engage with the daily task of getting dressed.

NOTHING SPECIAL JACKET is a normal jacket, it is a starting point of the whole collection.

DO-RE-MI JACKET is a helpful reminder on dressing sequence, using a well-remembered musical sequence in a playful and decorative way.

EMPATHY JACKET allows us to experience the difficulties and struggles of dementia who attempts to dress up but fails.

DIAGRAM JACKET is co-created with carers which helps dementia patients dress more easily with specific instructions.

OK DEMENTIA JACKET overrides the social norms of dressing because of the unconventional nature of the garment. There is no wrong way to dress.
