UNLEASH YOUR WILD SIDE
Almost 50% of adults over the age of 50 experience knee pain. But wait, what does that have to do with monster purses?
Well, this is a purse with a purpose. It's a unique solution made to inspire elderly women, or those with knee pain, to embrace their disabilities in a new way. Because getting in and out of vehicles is often times a struggle, now there's a way to easily lift your leg in and out -- in style.
This project was part of a two week workshop focusing on transportation for those with disabilities. Monster Couture was created in collaboration with Simran Singh.
By interviewing a number of elderly individuals about their struggles with transportation, we found knee pain to be a common factor.
Our inspiration comes from these fierce women who embrace eccentric style, and don't let age influence their everyday life.
Create a product that allows elderly individuals to gain back the freedom of travel by reducing limitations associated with their disabilities.
And so, we got to work.
Each purse was hand made and embellished with fabrics, furs, sequins, and buttons. The interior has two pockets, and two handles fold out for leg-lifting capabilities.
