Acclaim for Type 1 Clothing: an innovative Manchester brand

30 June 2017

Manchester business owner Natalie Balmain has been winning acclaim for her growing enterprise, Type 1 Clothing. From her background in the fashion industry, Natalie has developed a range of women’s clothing designed to support women with diabetes. In particular, Type 1 Clothing’s garments allow the wearer to manage their condition simply and effectively using innovative technical features while also being fashionable.

In particular, an aspect of Natalie’s products incorporate a novel element that allows the wearer easily to carry, use, and access an insulin pump while the wearer is out and about. Dan Thornton and Simon Parry from our Manchester office worked with Natalie to prepare and file a patent application to protect this innovation.
