Aren't They Beautiful? Three Models With Disabilities Reveal How They Made It In The Fashion World
September 21, 2018
It's very difficult to find success in the fashion industry. Thousands of stunning models try their best every year to get noticed, but can you imagine what it's like to be a girl with a disability and dreaming of becoming a model?
In 2008, Angel Sinclair started the Models of Diversity campaign in order to empower every person, no matter of their looks, to strive and enter the glamorous world of fashion.
“I felt like I made instant friends, and that’s not just because we were half naked from the moment we introduced ourselves, but also because there was a genuine atmosphere of warmth, acceptance, and empowerment. My journey to self-acceptance has been a long one, and it certainly is not over, but I really believe my day shooting with Aerie made a world of difference in how I view myself, my body, and my place in the world.” @itmemoana with her instant friends: @abby_sams, @catbeyond & @justgotmurphyd!
