Italian model with prosthetic leg Chiara Bordi to walk for Fashions Finest

On 16th February Chiara will walk at Fashions Finest during London Fashion Week. Fashions Finest remains committed to diversity not just as a trend but as part of their ethos.

 Chiara Bordi, 18 was born in Tarquinia, a small town near Rome. In July 2013, following a traffic accident, she lost her left foot.

Chiara BordiIt was a few months after this that she put on her first prosthesis leg, catapulting her into a completely different reality than the one she knew before. 

However, Chiara was excited about finally being able to regain her daily life and immediately started to show others and herself, that although she had a disability, she was able to do everything that an able-bodied person could. Chiara started climbing, she got a diving license and also joined a disability awareness project that allowed her to tell her story in many Italian schools including a fashion one for which her love of fashion grew. She has done numerous shoots and fashion shows and worked with the London "Models of Diversity" an agency that fights to annihilate the prejudices in the fashion world and to encourage disabled people to love their own body even if not in line with the "stereotypes" set by the society.

Chiara has since participated in "Miss Italy" and against all the odds, she took third place and she is proud to have been the first young woman with a prosthetic leg to participate in a beauty pageant. 

Chiara still has many goals to achieve but, step by step, with her prosthesis and a good dose of willpower she is sure she can achieve all her dreams. Her trip to the UK is sponsored by the charity ll Circolo London.


Fashions Finest and the Britain’s Top Designer Awards will be taking place at Congress Hall, 28 Great Russell Street, London WC1B 3LS as the new home for their event on the 16th of February 2019.
