Abstract

After discovering the vast amount of people living their life in a wheelchair, it is disappointing to see their limitations within the fashion industry. Finding a product that benefits a specific career for their needs is essential and not a priority in the world. In discovering the difficulties of workspace access for make-up artists bound to a wheelchair, we created a solution through making a detachable table and make-up bag. This allows for the customer to easily transfer necessities from home to the appointment while also having access to her beauty products alongside. The table we designed allows a handle for easy transportation with velcro on the bottom allowing adaptability for multiple arm chair sizes. Snaps are located at the end of the table where the make-up bag is attached. The bag has multiple compartments that display the utensils in an organized fashion. This makes it easier to access and allow for a smoother consultation. For a compact travel opportunity, the bag can be folded to protect the materials for moving to the next client. As a whole, each of these details allow for a successful career in the make-up industry without facing limitations.
