At FFORA, we recognize the needs and requirements for functional and attractive products where form and function go hand in hand. We collaborate and co-design with people who have disabilities to design products that offer ease-of accessibility and freedom of choice.

Unlike other fashion houses that offer adaptive services, or modified collections, we believe that disability should be considered at every stage of product creation in order to be authentic and to start a dialogue within fashion design that is far overdue.

At FFORA we design for a world that is inclusive and accessible for everybody.

Because when we design for all, we all win.
