Chicago fashion show features children with disabilities


NBC reported that a fashion show in Chicago called Changing the Faces of Beauty featured 22 children models. About half of them were living with a disability.

Some of the disabilities included missing limbs, inability to walk, and Downs syndrome. The show intended to create inclusivity in the fashion world and let children with disabilities know they are beautiful as well.

“I think that everybody’s unique so everybody should be included,” one participant said. “Because nobody’s perfect.”
