“It’s drawing attention to their disability in a positive way,” said de Oliveira Barata. “Rather than people seeing what’s missing, it’s about what they’ve got.” “Having an alternative limb is about claiming control and saying ‘I’m an individual and this reflects who I am.”
The Alternative Limb Project, started by London designer Sophie de Oliveira Barata, gives fashion to the function of prosthetic limbs. The pieces created are amazing works of art that exude the individual personality of the wearer. See more about the Alternative Limb Project here.
