Paralympic athlete Kaede Maegawa and 11 other women displayed their prosthetic legs in a virtual fashion show held in central Tokyo on Tuesday.
The event, titled "Setsudan Venus" (Amputee Venus), took place at JR Takanawa Gateway Station, with the Paralympian running the catwalk. It also featured other models including businesswomen.
"I want them to be able to smile on stage and take pleasure in being fashionable," said the show's producer and prosthetist Fumio Usui.
Photographer Takao Ochi, who published a collection of images in 2014 of the same title, proposed the idea for a show and will be releasing a 2021 calendar that features Maegawa, among others.
All proceeds, excluding a sales commission, will be donated to the Tokyo Nursing Association.
The Tokyo Paralympic Games, rescheduled to next year, were originally slated to begin on Aug. 25.
