The Story behind MOS

MOS was created by me, Alicia de Groot, in 2016.I spent years learning to build the technical foundation for my work at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute (AMFI).My graduation project was fashion for people with a wheelchair or an orthosis. This type of clothing was a way to challenge myself because making clothing for people in a wheelchair is in the first place a technical process: the fit is of the outmost importance.

When I was studying, there were about 250.000 people that depended on a wheelchair to move around. That amount of people was really surprising to me. I soon found out that there was barely any clothing for this target audience, more so for the youth. It had to be fate.

After finishing my studies, I wanted to develop myself more  in this field. In 2016 I started the brand MOS because I strongly believe that there has to be fashionable clothing for people in a wheelchair. It is not without reason that the philosophy behind MOS: Fashion for everyone. 

I am not dependent on a wheelchair and had, when I was graduating, no one in my  immediate vicinity that was in a wheelchair. How ever a few years ago, my grandmother got diagnosed with dementia and beacause of this she had to start using a wheelchair. She is the person I look up to and the one that i gave me, my passion for sewing. Sadly she got diagnosed a year before I started MOS, This meant that she was not able to witness me starting my own brand. She is however able to make good use of one of my own capes.

What I like doing when I am not working? I can work in my garden for hours. It clears my head. We even have a little area set up in our garden for me to grow my own vegetables etc. I also like cooking. You can always wake me up for food, especially breakfast! I eat Vegan because my body hasn’t handled meat and dairy that well,Also because i think it’s important to contribute something to reduce climat change.
