New York Fashion Week, September 2015. Something amazing and unheard of happened. A young woman called Madeline Stuart took to the cat-walk and brought down the house.
The model Maddy Stuart has walked the catwalk at New York Fashion Week and been on the cover of international fashion magazines. But life is not straightforward, as Maddy has to fight her own battles every day. She is the first professional supermodel with Downs Syndrome. A young girl, who – with her mother as an eternal supporter – challenges the norms of beauty as she breaks down barriers all over the world for people with disabilities. But does Maddy's career actually ensure greater diversity and inclusion within the industry - or is she just the latest trend in the fashion world?
