Michele Simões is a Brazilian fashion designer, and wheelchair user, who developed the #MYBODYISREAL campaign to bring attention to the lack of diversity in fashion. Simões uses a conceptual approach to break stereotypes of disability. A whimsical setting was the backdrop for an editorial in which the models were dressed as dolls, proposing a renewed reflection on the concept of real bodies.
