Have you ever walked through a clothing store or passed a shop window and wished there were a mannequin that looked more like you? I have, and I’m a person with a disability so you can imagine how interested I was to see this project put together by a Zurich advocacy group called Pro Infirmis. The project, done as part of International Day of Persons with Disabilities is called “Because who is perfect? Get closer.” Miss Handicap 2010 Jasmine Rechsteiner, radio host and film critic Alex Oberholzer, athlete Urs Kolly, blogger Nadja Schmid, and actor Erwin Aljukić all volunteered to participate and have mannequins designed to their personal specifications.
