Fashion Week – NYC

Though I have never actually attended Fashion week in NY, I have heard it’s a quite a lot of fun.   Just imagine all those tall, fit models walking down a runway, showing off a variety of designer collections.  How would this image change if all of the models had disabilities?  I for one would think it very cool.  That’s exactly what Fashion with Passion, an organization in London, did to further their cause of promoting disability awareness.  Twelve models with conditions varying from MS to spinal injuries joined the runway, donning designer outfits, eliciting cheers and applause from the crowd. What a way to celebrate fashion.  A beautiful model is a beautiful model whether she walks down a runway or rides in a wheelchair.
