Borbála Györök and Adrienna Nagy: Prototype
During the design process, we tried to accommodate Réka’s unique taste and needs as well as her sometimes ambivalent relationship with the fake limb. Two different materials have been used to show Réka’s inner struggle, her acceptance and self-confidence is visualized by the sheer material. The zip on the right leg of the suit allows an easier and quicker access to the prosthetic leg. It was also important for us that the piece of clothing would not hide but complement Réka’s prosthetic leg.
In addition to the practical considerations, the main idea and the added value behind this collection carried a greater importance compared to design works we have done before. We focused not only on Réka’s specific needs, but we wanted to catch the attention of society through fashion.
