Madeline Stuart to walk NYFW
Posted on 19 September 2015
Meet Madeline Stuart - she’s 18, lives in Australia, loves to model, and she's not about to let Down Syndrome stop her from chasing her dreams. Madeline is the latest addition to New York Fashion week and will hit the runway walking for FTL Moda in September.
This will be the first major catwalk appearance for Madeline, although she is no stranger to the world of modelling. She has worked previously for fitness brand Manifesta and was also the covergirl for handbag brand everMaya, but has never worked the catwalk before.
The Moda show is in association with Christopher Reeve whose Italian brand has broken down boundaries in the past. In February, Jamie Brewer became the first model with Down Syndrome to appear in a major fashion runway show courtesy of the label.
At home, Madeline enjoys sports and hanging out with her friends, and although she has been gifted these extraordinary opportunities, she is described as “a regular girl who just wants to help people.”
