When we came across this story, we knew it had to be shared. Actress Jamie Brewer made history this year at New York Fashion Week and we love why.
Jamie Brewer has secured the spot as the first model with Down Syndrome to walk Fashion Week’s runway! Let us tell you, she looked absolutely stunning!
Designer Carrie Hammer lead the charge with her campaign ‘Role Models Not Runway Models,’ featuring everyday women who were more likely to actually buy the fashion line including CEOs, web developers, bankers and more. Hammer is an active advocate for people with disabilities.
We hope this is just the start of a new initiative in the fashion industry.
