Alexandra Connell, her own experience making her keenly aware of how disabilities and looking or acting differently can impact a person’s life, launched PATTI + RICKY LLC, offering an online shopping destination that caters to people with special needs due to disability, disease or stage of life.
“Most people with physical disabilities have no choice but to tailor clothing in order to make their garments work for them or shop at medical supply stores. PATTI + RICKY strives to be the one-stop shop for people with disAbilities, visible and non-visible, temporary and lifelong. Our process to partner with designers involves extensive research in order to find both stylish and functional clothing and accessories for women, men and kids with disabilities,“ Connell shares via email.
The online platform also addresses needs of customers who may have difficulties physically shopping inside a brick-and-mortar store, with customer service representatives ready to support customers over the phone, email, text and video chat, and through the instant messaging service available on the website.
