OFA is a contemporary fashion label that aims to blur the boundaries between mainstream design and design for disability, by identifying the common needs/interests between able-bodied people and people with disabilities to create inclusive designs that can be utilised by both of them.
OFA started because of the lack of representation and adaptive clothings for people with disabilities, who have been neglected and undervalued by the fashion industry. With that, OFA wants to be the change in the local fashion scene and offers people with disabilities more variations when it comes to apparels and accessories. For its inaugural collection, OFA collaborated with wheelchair users and involved them in the design process to come up with a series of inclusive fashion products that could be utilised by both the abled and disabled bodies. Its designs are intended to look mainstream with hidden inclusive design features. OFA hopes that more designers will be inspired to create more products to celebrate diversity and promote inclusivity in the community.
