Last Thursday, February 12th, was the opening night of the semi-annual New York Fashion Week. In itself not a big news fact. It ìs a news fact though that this evening for the first time a model with Down syndrome walked the catwalk.
New York’s Under Age Model Law went into effect on November ’13. How well does it work at NY Fashion Week? Does it create a healthier work environment?
At the latest NYFW (SS14), we could witness USA’s first ‘plus-size’ runway show. But was this really a fashion runway show or just a media trend?
