F/W 2024


McCauley Wanner & Ryan Palibroda

Since its inception, the ALLELES Design Studio has been focused on creating choice for amputees through the development of fashion-forward prosthetic leg covers. Drawing inspiration from the eyeglass industry, our aim has been to transform medical devices from items people were trying to hide, to something people would choose to represent their distinct personality and style.

Founders, McCauley Wanner and Ryan Palibroda, launched their products online through in 2013. Creating an online store allowed designs to be accessible to amputees worldwide, making it one of the first products in the prosthetic market to be available direct-to-consumer. 

With a background of industrial design, art, and architecture, our dream has always been to bring our skill sets into other realms and showcase the importance of design on people's lives. We have spent the last ten years as an R&D studio developing efficient ways of bringing a made-to-order product to life and we are excited that we finally have the opportunity to showcase what the studio can do.

More importantly we are excited for a runway show featuring a bunch of our friends who are representative of the clients that we work with everyday. 

This collection will explore full head-to-toe looks using the technology and techniques we have developed in house and blur the lines between prosthetics and fashion.

The ALLELES Design Studio has been recognized and showcased worldwide by: Instagram, The White House (Washington, DC), Museum of Man (Paris, France), Kent State Museum of Fashion (Kent, Ohio), Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum (New York, NY), The Word Economic Forum (Davos, Switzerland), Carnegie Museum of Art (Pittsburgh, PA), Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal (QC), and various other Museums across Canada.
