If you can feel it and DREAM it, surely, you can be it.

The mission of the ALLELES Design Studio is to provide creative and accessible prosthetic covers for lower limb amputees. Being influenced by the eyeglass industry, we are using design to transform prosthetic cosmesis from a medical device into a new stream of fashion. By taking a fashion approach to an otherwise very medical industry, we are hoping to remove the stigma of disability and empower amputees to embrace their prosthesis as an object of self-expression.
