Metro: Model with Down’s Syndrome walks the runway for New York Fashion Week

The fashion world tends to show us one rigid definition of beauty: thin, white, abled women.

Thankfully brands are moving towards being more inclusive.

New York Fashion Week has embraced diversity as the annual event included a model with Down’s Syndrome, one of the first to walk on a major runway show.

Marian Avila walked the catwalk wearing sparkling gowns made by designer Talisha White.
