UNIQUE CLIENT: Inclusive Design


© Unique Client

Simona Rybáková, costume designer, has been active on the national and international scene of theatre, film and specific projects for almost 40 years. Her strong interest in cross-disciplinary subjects brought her to the Fashion and Footwear Studio of UMPRUM in 2020, where together with her students, she developed the project UNIQUE CLIENT. With an inclusive design perspective, this project is aimed at those who are not able to wear ready-to-wear clothing due to health, injury, birth anomalies, lifestyle or gender identity. More than just a collection of clothes, it is also a reflection on the specific needs of many people who do not fit the standard canons. During this talk, Simona Rybáková will present the project and the reflections that led to the creation of UNIQUE CLIENT.
